Periodontal disease that goes undetected is the leading cause of tooth loss. In fact, we know that 90 percent of all adults have periodontal (gum) disease in some form. The disease strikes without notice, and in its early stages, it produces aching gums, easy bleeding, and poor breath. Teeth loosen and separate as time goes on, your bite changes, and teeth are eventually lost
As a result, we include a routine of thorough gum evaluation in each of your visits.
