Is gum disease reversible?

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

In its earliest stages, we can reverse gum disease with the proper dental care and at-home oral hygiene routines. Once gum disease has progressed past a certain point, however, the disease is not reversible and will likely require additional care to keep it from progressing.
