Are my gums ok?

What is Gum Disease

Gum diseases, also known as periodontal diseases, are oral conditions that can be treated effectively if detected early (gingivitis) and managed with proper care even at a more advanced stage (periodontitis). Dealing with periodontal disease requires ongoing attention and it is a joint effort between you and your oral healthcare provider. However, if you do not actively participate and cooperate with your dentist, the disease is likely to persist or worsen. You play a crucial role in controlling gum disease.
