Gum Disease


Leabank Dental Clinic is a team of specialists providing several dental clinic services, including Gum Disease Service. Gum disease, also called periodontal disease, is a bacterial infection of the gums and the bones around the teeth. The causative agents are the bacteria that inhabit the teeth and the spaces between them and the gums. If left untreated, this disease can lead to tooth loss, which can have adverse effects on nutrition, speech, appearance, and general health. However, there is good news: gum disease can be prevented and treated.
