Our doctors and skilled dental hygienists actively screen for signs of gum disease and provide treatment to prolong the function of your teeth and gums. Your gums are vulnerable to infection. Bacteria can build up in the pockets of your gums surrounding your teeth. This bacteria slowly eats away at your gum tissue and the bone that hold your teeth in place. For this reason, periodontal disease leads to more mobile teeth and tooth loss than cavities and tooth decay. It is the “silent killer” that often does not cause immediate pain or noticeable symptoms until it is severe.
