Periodontal disease (gum disease) in Georgia is more common than you might think, and can be cured
with varying degrees of treatment depending on the severity.
What is periodontal disease? Periodontal disease, more commonly called ‘gum disease‘, is an inflammation or infection of the gums. Gum disease can be very painful in some extreme conditions, and can limit your ability to eat normally. In some cases, periodontal disease can affect your smile, and can create cosmetic concerns.
If left untreated, gum disease can cause irreversible damage. When caught early and treated, gum disease can be little more than an inconvenience. However the best policy is to practice good dental hygiene to keep periodontal disease at bay.
One of the best ways to avoid gum disease is to get a regular dental check up at your local Gainesville, GA general dentist.
