Periodontal (gum) health has been proven to contribute to overall health. Periodontal disease is an infection which affects the tissues and bone that support the teeth. This disease has been shown to be directly associated with heart disease and even pancreatic cancer.
More people experience tooth loss related to periodontal disease than to tooth decay.

- Poor homecare

Our staff is committed to promoting and helping you maintain the best possible oral health for you and your entire family.
