Periodontal (gum) disease can lead to more than just an unsightly smile — it can cause loss of teeth and eventually other more serious health problems if left untreated. Called gingivitis in its early stages, periodontal disease is caused by excessive toxic bacteria (found in plaque) that attack your mouth’s soft tissues. Early warning signs of this disease include red, swollen or bleeding gums. If caught early, we can help you reverse the damage. If detected late, we can use one of the many effective restorative dentistry procedures to restore your mouth to its healthy and beautiful state. Let our dentist and team at Monarch View Dental Care help you keep your teeth and gums strong and disease-free with regular examinations and cleanings.
Healthy Gums Lead to a Healthy Body
Continued research has linked gum disease to diabetes, heart disease and low birth weight in babies. In an effort to rid your teeth of the plaque and tartar that cause gum disease (gingivitis) and tooth decay, your dental care hygienist may suggest a regimen of care that requires more frequent visits to our office. These visits are recommended to remove the offending plaque and tartar.
