Periodontal disease is quiet at first. You may not even notice the first symptoms. But left untreated, it will lead to a receded gumline, loose or falling-out teeth, and even systemic health issues like heart disease and stroke.

If the problem is caught early on, gum disease treatment may be just a matter of regular dental visits and good oral hygiene. But if it’s progressed, we may have to do a deep-cleaning procedure called scaling and root planing. Watch this video from the American Dental Association to learn more.
