When it comes to your dental health, you need to take care of your whole mouth, not just your teeth. The bone and gums that act as the foundation for your teeth requires a specific kind of dentistry called periodontics.
Periodontics is the study of the health and safety of the foundation made up of soft tissue and bone that surrounds your teeth. Your gums are the foundation of your smile and weak gums can lead to pain, increases in decay, and even tooth loss. The most common source of gum problems is gum disease, sometimes known as gingivitis, which can lead to decaying and receding gums. The most common signs of gum disease are sore gums and bleeding.
Along with daily brushing and flossing, regular check-ups are a essential to ensuring that your gums are healthy, so call us today – we’d be happy to help!
