The joint between teeth and gum weakens when there is infection in the gum. The dentist will check clinically to see the symptoms of gum disease. If the infection is limited to one or two teeth, a small x ray is taken. If the infection is seen in the entire jaw, a full moth x ray (opg) is taken. On seeing the radio-graph, the dentist will decide if further treatment with laser is required. Sometimes artificial bone powder is packed to strengthen the bone. If not treated early, teeth start loosening.
Treat the gums and do scaling.
