Did you know that the most common dental problem and the most common disease in the entire world is actually periodontal disease? Currently, the CDC estimates that about 75-80% of adults in the U.S. have some form of it, and many are completely unaware! Left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to tooth loss and even an increased risk of heart attack and stroke. We’ll examine your gums whenever you come to see us, and if we spot any trouble, we’ll be able to quickly handle it with periodontal therapy, which may consist of a deep cleaning or antibiotic therapy.
Are your gums looking red, swollen, puffy, or do they bleed often? These are clear signs of periodontal disease, and to keep it from getting worse, be sure to contact us today.
