What treatments do Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons perform?

Red, swollen and bleeding gums are common symptoms of periodontal or gum disease. This is often caused by poor oral hygiene.
The early stage of gum disease called gingivitis usually poses zero or very little pain or discomfort.
Left untreated, this could advance to a more serious form of gum disease called periodontitis. Periodontitis is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults.
