Dental Gum Disease

Gum Disease Treatment Las Cruces NM

The Main Reason for Lost Teeth

It's important to know that most teeth are lost due to gum disease – not trauma or decay. This condition will often have no symptoms until the problem is severe. Early signs of infection include bleeding gums from flossing or brushing and loose teeth. If treated in the early stages, nonsurgical methods will halt the problem; otherwise, surgery may be the only option if you wait too long for treatment. Both types of treatment are generally covered by most insurance plans.
