For early gum disease, the medical term is gingivitis or periodontal disease. In general, gum disease can be caused by long-term exposure to plaque, the sticky but colourless film on teeth that forms after eating or sleeping. Although gum disease is the major cause of tooth loss in adults, in many cases it is avoidable, so talk to your dentist today.
Most times, patience is the best medicine for treating canker sores. A healthy diet and good oral hygiene are usually the best remedy, but some anesthetics and special rinses can help. Cold sores can be treated effectively with some over-the-counter topical creams. Sometimes, an antiviral medication will be prescribed by your doctor.
