With National Kissing Day fast approaching on June 19th, it is more important than ever to make sure that your mouth is healthy, kissable and most importantly, gum disease free. Gum disease is one of the most common oral hygiene conditions and one of the most detrimental to the optimal health of the mouth. With good preventative care and regular dental checkups and cleanings, however, gum disease can be avoided. But if your gums have already progressed into a state of infection, there are minimally painful and invasive treatment methods, like laser gum surgery, that can restore full health and function back to your mouth.

 

Gum Disease: Symptoms and Treatment

You might consider many of the signs and symptoms of gum disease normal for you. Do you have sensitivity when you brush or floss your teeth? Do your gums sometimes bleed when you brush, floss or eat hard foods? Have your teeth lost their original locations in your mouth and become loose or have you noticed your gums starting to recede?

If you do have any of these signs going on in your mouth, it may be time to think about a procedure like laser gum surgery, a new and effective dental technology which allows your dentist to gently rid your mouth of the infection that was causing your gum disease and help your gums to heal. Using delicate lasers to eliminate bacteria and manipulate the gums, your dentist will likely be able to reduce inflammation, discomfort and bleeding in your mouth.
