Gingivitis

Gingivitis Treatment by Dr. Ammar Taimish 

Also known as gum diseaseand usually a result of poor hygiene, gingivitis is a chronic inflammation of the gingival tissue. Early detection by Dr. Ammar Taimish (Downtown Toronto Dentist) can help treat the condition before it evolves into periodontitis or even reverse the inflammatory process altogether. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings with Dr. Ammar Taimish at Norton Dental Downtown can help to detect gingivitis before it escalates into gum disease.

Once gingivitis has progressed into periodontal disease, it is irreversible without surgery and can lead to tooth and bone loss. Periodontitis is the leading cause of tooth loss seen in patients today. There is also a significant correlation between diabetes, strokes, heart attacks and gum disease.
