Q: Is there any way I can get rid of gum disease without a root canal or buying products?
A: A root canal is different than gum disease treatments. Think of the inside of the tooth as lead in a pencil. The lead has to be removed because of infection in the nerve of the tooth and a rubber material (usually gutta percha) is placed in the canal of the root. Gum disease surrounds the teeth and has little to do with the nerve in most cases. We don’t recommend you buy products.
