You might know that gum disease is actually a fairly serious, yet common issue that you should try to address as soon as possible. However, did you know that almost half of all Americans have gum disease? Of course, it’s important for you to have gum disease treated as soon as possible. If you don’t, it may become more severe.

Naturally, gum disease might actually cause tooth loss. If you deal with gum disease quickly, it’s relatively easy to address. In fact, if you brush and floss well enough, you could reverse gum disease from home. Similarly, we might be able to treat gum disease by cleaning your pearly whites and your gums thoroughly. Fortunately, you could also watch for symptoms such as persistent bad breath, tender gums, sensitive teeth, and discomfort when you chew.

Naturally, we also recommend scheduling regular appointments with us. We generally recommend visiting our office twice a year. These visits are actually important since many people actually have gum disease and don’t realize it. We’ll also be happy to offer you specific advice on keeping your teeth clean.
