More Than Your Daily Brushing and Flossing

Many Americans suffer from periodontal disease without even knowing it. Also known as gum disease, it begins when harmful bacteria becomes trapped in between the gums and teeth. If left untreated, this disease can spread quickly and have disastrous results on your dental health, such as gum tissue becoming destroyed or receding from the teeth, bone loss, and the loosening or loss of teeth. As gum disease begins to develop, patients may experience gum redness, swelling, and pain or irritation in the mouth. If you are concerned about your dental health, get the care you need by speaking with one of our trained professionals about setting an appointment.

Six Month Appointments With Us.

The American Dental Association has reported that an estimated 47% of the U.S. population aged 30 years or older suffer from mild to severe forms of gum disease. Because gum disease can begin painlessly it is hard to detect at home. By attending regular dental cleanings and exams, Dr. Blair and her team will be able to assess your dental health condition and determine your risks for developing gum disease. With an experienced and helpful team at your side, devising a treatment plan for your specific needs is easy.
