Gum disease and gingivitis is one of the leading causes of tooth loss for both adults and children. Those who have gum disease may experience swollen or bleeding gums, loose teeth, or even bad breath. All Star Dental cannot stress enough the importance of routinely brushing and flossing your teeth every day in order to prevent gum disease and gingivitis.
Luckily, the conditions are treatable if caught early. It’s important to understand what the main causes are so that you can avoid developing symptoms and undergoing treatment altogether. Our dental offices in the greater Chicago area are here to help you identify and (if you can) avoid the main causes of gum disease.
As mentioned above, gum disease is easily prevented with proper oral health care and avoiding habits such as smoking and an unbalanced diet. Luckily though, if our Chicago area dentists do catch early signs of gum disease, we will recommend a treatment plan for you. Contact one of our locations today to schedule an appointment.
