Many people don’t realise how important it is to have healthy gums. Gum disease can be extremely detrimental to your oral health and result in tooth decay and receding gums which can cause a number of issues.
If you have every had swollen or sore gums or experienced bleeding gums while brushing, you may already have gum disease in its earlier stages.
There are a number of things you can do to avoid gum disease, which include the well known daily steps of flossing, brushing and rinsing. But if the gum disease or ‘periodontal disease’ is left untreated and becomes more severe, East Bentleigh Dental Group has a number of treatment options.
You can read about the treatments on the EBDG website. This link will give you some more information on periodontal disease; http://www.melbourne-dentist.com.au/services-our-cosmetic-dental-treatments-melbourne-victoria/services-periodontal-disease-treatment-restorative-dentist-melbourne-victoria/
