If gum disease is diagnosed, your dentist may refer you to a periodontist, a dentist who specializes in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of periodontal disease. Treatment is dependent on the severity of periodontal disease, but should never be an unpleasant experience.

Prevention

You can help prevent gum disease by brushing twice a day and cleaning between your teeth with floss or an inter-dental cleaner once a day. Choose products that display the ADA Seal of Acceptance, your assurance that they meet the ADA’s criteria for safety and effectiveness.
