You can help stop Gingivitis before it develops by:
Always attend regular check-ups with your dentist and schedule appointments with the hygienist.
Periodontitis is caused by long standing Gingivitis; there are different stages of periodontitis.
Periodontitis disease affects the tissues supporting the teeth. As the disease gets worst the bone anchoring the teeth in the jaw is lost, making the teeth loose or mobile.
It is important that you visit your dentist or will refer you to a hygienist or in the advance stage to a Specialist Periodontitis surgeon for treatment.
