regular visits to the periodontist help reduce gum disease
Gum disease is often treated using scaling and root planning, a conservative non-surgical procedure. But to maintain non-bleeding gums after treatment, regular maintenance is necessary. The dental hygienist, at the general dentist or periodontist, can assess gum pockets regularly.
A regular visit to the dentist is essential to detect early signs of gum disease and bleeding gums.
