According to the National Institutes of Health, 8–10% of American adults currently have some degree of gum disease.
In the past, the tried-and-true treatment for gum disease was surgery. If our dentists can diagnose gum disease in the early stage (known as gingivitis), they can easily reverse it with minimally-invasive treatments including medicated rinses and professional deep cleanings.
Left untreated, gum disease can progress to more serious periodontal disease, which can result in tooth loss, infections, and an increased risk of heart attack and stroke. It’s important to stay up-to-date on your routine cleanings and exams so our doctors can monitor the status of your teeth and gums.
