the mouth. The condition cause spongy inflamed gums which bleed on
touching/ brushing. It can severely restrict eating- as the gums may even

One good feature about gum disease is that it responds easily to treatment
provided the patient meticulously follows the dentists instructions. At the dental
clinic the first step is to ascertain the cause of the disease-which is known by
your medical history, diet and list of medications. The treatment involves
thorough Cleaning and polishing of teeth. We may also suggest deep cleaning
