Gum disease needn’t be an obstacle to teeth implants

If you’ve suffered from gum disease, you may have lost teeth if your gingivitis progressed to the later stage of the condition, known as periodontitis.  An article on click4teeth explains the signs and symptoms of gum disease, how it can be treated, and how gum disease can affect dental implant treatment.  

Gum disease, if left untreated, can damage the bone in your jaw and compromise the stability of any dental implants that might be placed.  The article explains the benefits of a rigorous oral cleaning regime to help minimise the risks of gum disease after dental implant treatment.
