If you have gum disease, you could find yourself with a number of serious questions. For instance, you might wonder how severe your gum disease is or what could have caused this issue. Most importantly, you might be wondering what you can do about gum disease.
You see, gum disease could lead to several serious issues, though you may be able to treat gum disease by brushing or flossing your teeth. In fact, it can even lead to bone loss or to tooth loss. However, would you be surprised to learn that dental implants can help you reverse the issues caused by gum disease? To be clear, an implant won’t bring back lost bone, but it will help prevent more bone loss.
Furthermore, an implant can improve the appearance of your smile while replacing missing teeth. Improved technology has made placing implants more efficient than ever. Once your implant is placed, you’ll be able to chew and speak more comfortably. In other words, if you lose a tooth because of gum disease, an implant may be the solution you need.
