Gingivitis should be treated to restore oral health.

Gingivitis, an early stage of gum disease, is both treatable and preventable with routine dental visits to Philadelphia area family dentist Dr. Poorva Parnaik at Dental Creations in Medford.

Left untreated, gum disease can silently compromise a patient’s oral health and even lead to tooth loss. Most patients do not realize they have gum disease until it is either spotted during preventive care by Dr. Parnaik or it begins to create more complex dental problems that require immediate attention.
