How to Reverse the Effects of Gum Disease

Are you suffering from a sore mouth, receding gums, bleeding or swollen gums, or consistently bad breath? If so, according to the Center of Disease Control and Prevention, you could be part of the 50% of adults in the U.S. who suffer from periodontal disease. Fortunately, when diagnosed with gum disease, there is still hope for a healthy smile.

In an interview with Dr. Jennifer Hirsh Doobrow, a board-certified periodontist, it is revealed that even the most severe of cases can be reversed. In these situations, a surgery using Straumann Emdogain can be performed. The application of this product stimulates bone regeneration, leaving you with optimal oral health that has long-lasting results.

Whether you have been treated for gum disease or simply want to maintain a healthy mouth, it is important to be aware of your periodontal wellness. By attending routine dental checkups, periodontal disease can be diagnosed in its earliest stages, making the effects much less invasive. Ultimately, a healthy mouth is a choice that results from consistent oral care.
