Preventing Against Periodontal Disease

Do you ever feel pain in your mouth? Do your gums bleed when you brush your teeth? You may be among the one third of the adult population with periodontal disease, a painless infection that affects the gums and surrounding bone. The condition is usually caused by an excessive build-up of plaque. If too much bone is lost, you may lose your teeth. Periodontal disease can usually be arrested with regular dental care. For more troublesome cases, regular cleaning every three to four months by one of our hygienists can help preserve your gums and teeth.
