The ligaments, bone, and gums around the teeth form the foundation for your smile. All of these structures are also referred to as the periodontium. When your periodontium is not healthy, it puts the foundation of your teeth at great risk.
With proper treatment, it is possible to return the gum tissue to a healthy state. Gum treatment usually involved a deep cleaning or root planing done under a local anesthetic along with local antibiotic agents. Early treatment is the key to periodontal therapy, and if you have any of these symptoms, please call Dr. Tindal right away to schedule an appointment.
