How does the dentist treat gum disease?

Gum disease is mostly preventable with regular dental exams and teeth cleanings near Shaker Heights. Good oral hygiene between dental visits plays an important role as well.

If you have gum disease, it means you have infections in the bone and tissues that hold your teeth. These infections require intervention from your dentist to prevent tooth loss and systemic health complications—gum disease has been linked to heart attack, stroke, and more.
