Manifestations of Gum Disease include bad breath, redness and bleeding gums especially during brushing and/or flossing. In advanced cases, symptoms can include pain and excessive tooth mobility.
Treatment of gum disease involves removal of plaque and plaque-retentive factors present in the mouth like calculus and rough and overextended fillings. This can be done through oral prophylaxis and root planning. Reinforcement of proper oral hygiene methods is also done to maintain the health of the gums.
