Most Teeth Are Lost for a Surprising Reason
The general assumption among most patients is that teeth are usually lost due to decay. However, the main reason is gum (periodontal) disease. Sometimes there are symptoms, but sometimes there are no warning signs until you are at the point of losing your teeth. Bleeding gums and loose teeth are symptoms that should be addressed immediately with our care. Advanced gum infection may require surgery, but less severe cases can be reversed with nonsurgical methods.
