Gum Disease Screening and Detection in Binbrook
Gum disease is a term that refers to the infection of the gums and its prevalence is very common. There are varying levels of severity, but the two most common types of gum disease are gingivitis and periodontitis.
Gingivitis or gum inflammation is very common, and its symptoms can include bleeding gums and swelling.
By having a dental hygienist performing a hygiene service and by following a strict daily regiment of brushing, flossing, and swishing of anti-bacterial or anti-septic mouthwash, gingivitis can be reversed.
Severe cases of gum inflammation due to bacterial buildup can lead to periodontal disease. Periodontal disease can lead to tooth loss, extreme gum recession, gum and tissue infection, pain, ulcers and mouth cancer.
