Gum disease is one of the oral problems with the highest complexity and difficulty of treatment. Gingivitis and periodontitis are the most widely known types of gum diseases. They are usually caused by an inadequate oral hygiene, and may eventually lead to tooth loss. However, there’s a way to revert gum disease after following a professional treatment plan along with a proper oral hygiene and home care. You can also prevent gum disease by having your yearly appoinment with your dentist, and by being attentive to alert signs such as tender and red gums, bleeding after brushing, pus between your teeth, loose teeth, and bad breath.
