Treatment for the gum-teeth is dependant on the severity of gum disease present. The most mild form of gum disease is gingivivitis, only the gums are inflammed with no destruction of bone support. Most of the adult population has mild gingivitis. In this picture we see gingivitis, but a teeth gum probing must be done to determine if there is a pocket. Treatment of gingivitis could be as mild as a routine dental cleaning. Please see www.PeriodontalDisease.us for more information.
