Gum Disease Treatment and Prevention – Omaha, NE
Gum disease, also called periodontal disease, is a leading cause of adult tooth loss. Gum disease is caused by certain bacteria which grow around the teeth and under gum tissue. If left untreated, this disease can weaken and destroy the bone around the teeth.
In advanced cases, teeth will loosen and drift, becoming painful and infected. Ultimately this can lead to tooth removal. Gum disease will not cause extreme pain until the disease is quite advanced, but regular dental exams for our Omaha dental patients will reveal gum problems when in the early stages and treated easily.
