Your teeth aren’t the only important part of your mouth! It is just as important to take care of the gums and bones that support the teeth in order to avoid periodontal (gum) disease. Periodontal disease is caused by an accumulation of plaque and calculus on the teeth and gums. When left untreated, periodontal disease can result in bone loss and tooth loss, and has also been associated with:
- High blood pressure
- Pregnancy complications
- Heart disease
At Village Place Dental in Warren, we provide periodontal disease treatment to protect you from these associated risks. Our deep cleaning services, scaling and root planing, can help fight and even reverse gingivitis, the first stage of periodontal disease. To learn more about periodontal disease and what you can do to prevent it, call us soon. If you experience gums that bleed, contact our office immediately, as this is one of the most common symptoms of periodontal disease.
