Save your teeth with early treatment
Sometimes during the gum disease process, the bacteria will actually grow along the root side of the tooth. And when that happens, the body doesn’t like that. So, the body’s actually going to retreat, which allows the bacteria to go a little bit deeper, and the bone will retreat. And it’s just this constant downward spiral. And so, once we get in there, and remove the bacteria, we’re able to use bone grafts to hopefully rebuild that bone that was lost. And that way we could save the tooth and hopefully don’t have to lose it.
