Gum disease, otherwise known as periodontal disease, can wreak havoc on your oral health. You may not even know if your gums are infected because gum disease can be relatively pain free for quite a while.
However, plaque buildup that is not removed can build and create toxins that damage your gums. Certain factors may increase your risk for periodontal disease.
Regular dental checkups and exams are important for maintaining your overall health and your smile. Don't forget to brush regularly, clean between your teeth, and floss daily.
Save Your Tooth and Your Smile
In the old days, if you had a tooth with a diseased nerve, there was a high chance of losing that tooth. These days, a root canal treatment can save your tooth and your smile.
If you have noticed pain while chewing, a severe toothache, or swelling and tenderness in your gums near the tooth, you may need a root canal therapy. Best of all, a restored tooth can last for many years if properly maintained through brushing, flossing, and regular checkups.
