Did you know that 78% of the adult population has some form of periodontal disease?
When your gums become infected and inflamed from periodontal disease (gingivitis or periodontitis), bacteria in dental plaque can spread and grow below the gum line. The bacteria can then enter into the blood stream and travel to major organs, where new infections may begin. Ongoing research suggests that periodontal disease is linked to heart disease, osteoporosis, and diabetes.
If your gums bleed or teeth look longer, contact us to discuss your periodontal health.
