Gum Disease Treatment
in Elland

The condition of your gums can have a major impact on your health as a whole, so it is essential to take good care of them. When plaque and tartar accumulate along the gum line, bacteria can thrive and this can go on to cause periodontal (gum) disease. This is a painful condition that can eventually lead to bone erosion and tooth loss.

Treating gum disease

It is much easier to treat gum problems if they are caught early, so it is key to seek the advice of your dentist as soon as you become aware of any symptoms. The treatment involved will depend on the individual case and how long the condition has been allowed to develop.

After a detailed examination, with x-rays and scans if necessary, your dentist will advise on the best course of action and outline the plan of treatment involved.
