Fight Against Gum Disease
Did you know that 86% of the population suffers from some form of gum disease? If left untreated, gum disease (also called periodontal disease) can cause bone loss in the jaw, and eventually you may lose teeth. Gum disease can also affect overall health. Research links gum disease to diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and other serious health conditions.
We diagnose and treat gum disease in our office. Some services we provide for gum disease are:
- Charting and diagnostic services
- In-office gum therapy
