Gum disease destroys the supporting structures around the natural teeth and implants can cause a lot of damage if not treated properly. It is a quiet and progressive disease and the worrying bit is it is not associated with any pain in early stages. If your gums feel or look swollen, it might be the start of a gum disease and it is a good idea to see a Dentist.
In the later stages of Gum Disease, the teeth will shift and become more shaky and loose. Sadly, the end result can be loosing the teeth.
Gum Disease is treated by removing bacterial plaque and dental tartar which is the main cause of the disease. This has to be done together with personalised oral hygiene instructions for each patient.
If you suspect you might show some early signs of a Gum Disease, we suggest you come see one of The GiGi Dental experts. This disease can be treated in as little as 6 weeks if treated correctly.
