The Risks of Delaying Periodontal Treatment
Active gum disease and missing teeth can have severe effects on your overall health and on your teeth’s ability to continue functioning properly. Depending on your individual case, Dr. Raanan will determine if your treatment is immediately necessary or can be maintainable for a period of time.
Gum disease in different patients can be aggressive or a slow process. It is important to Dr. Raanan to control the progression of the disease, preventing further damage to the jaw bone and tooth loss.
