Proper oral hygiene is the first step in the gum treatment process. If you are not brushing as often as you should, then plaque will build-up and cause oral infections and gum disease. Floss after you brush as well to strengthen the gums and clear out even more bacteria. When visiting our dentistry, be sure to ask about our recommended mouthwash products so you know which will best help fight off plaque.

There are several gum disease techniques we will perform in order to treat this problem.
