Is periodontal disease reversible?
May 12, 2013 6:43PM
For the most part, periodontal disease is not reversible. That means that whatever loss of periodontal attachment has occurred is usually permanent. It does not tend to grow back.
That is not to say, however, that there are not procedures available to improve the condition of the gums. Effectively controlling perio is routine in most dental offices these days.
Talk to a qualified dentist and dental hygienist to find out what options are available to you.
