Periodontal (gum) health has been proven to contribute to overall health. Periodontal disease is an infection that 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 tooth decay. Risk factors for periodontal disease include:

  • Poor homecare
  • Smoking
  • Hormonal changes in girls and women
  • Diabetes
  • Stress
  • Medications
  • Illnesses
  • Genetic susceptibility.

With routine dental visits, good homecare, and a balanced diet, periodontal disease can be maintained and altogether prevented. If you develop an infection, we have treatments to help get rid of it. Our staff is committed to promoting and helping you maintain the best possible oral health for you and your entire family.
