If you or someone you care about has gum disease, you’re NOT alone. Most adults have it to some degree. Periodontal disease, if left untreated, is a leading cause of tooth loss. It’s even associated with cardiovascular disease, certain cancers, low-birth rates and other diseases.
That’s why gum disease treatment is so important. Unfortunately, many avoid the periodontist because traditional gum disease treatment can be painful, anxiety-provoking and inconvenient.
Face it. Going to a periodontist for traditional gum disease treatment is no fun if it means:
Having teeth pulled and replaced with dentures or implants
Cutting open the gums to dig and scrape (and destroying nearby, healthy gum tissue)
Stitches and bandages
Lingering pain and medication
