DENTAL HEALTH PROTECTION
Periodontal disease, or gum disease, refers to the variety of ailments that can affect the gums, bones and supporting tissues of the mouth, causing them to become sensitive, swollen, infected, or even abscessed.
Gum disease is fairly common and the prognosis for slowing or stopping its progression is good. After treatment, it’s important that you follow your dentist’s directives concerning diet, exercise, medications and habits. Most important, is that you develop and maintain a healthy oral care routine.
If you have bad breath, pain in your gums, bleed during and/or after brushing your teeth, or your gums are receding, contact our periodontal specialist today.
