  • What does gum disease look like?

    Healthy gums are firm and pink. In contrast, diseased gums often look inflamed, swollen, and are more prone to bleeding. If the condition worsens, the gums may look as though they are receding, and in severe cases, the teeth might appear longer and spaces may become noticeable between them due to the recession of the gums.

  • How to treat gum disease?

    Treatment options vary depending on the severity of the disease, ranging from professional dental cleanings to more intensive treatments like scaling and root planing.

  • Can gum disease be prevented?

    Yes, with proper oral hygiene and regular dental visits, gum disease can often be prevented. We also recommend lifestyle changes such as quitting smoking and eating a balanced diet to reduce the risk.
