Too Late to Treat?
If you have signs of gum disease, do not immediately think that it is too late! Fighting off plaque and tartar with good oral hygiene habits can help defend your teeth from progressing info further stages of gum disease. While daily brushing and flossing are some of the best tools, it is also important to regularly visit your dentist for a cleaning. They can reach those hard spots and make a big difference! If the disease worsens, your dentist will refer you to a periodontist, such as Niagara Periodontics in St. Catharines! The CDA defines a periodontist as “one who has a least three years of extra university training in treating gum disease, and in restoring (or regenerating) bone and gum tissue that have been lost because of gum disease”.
