Periodontal Disease

A Healthy Mouth Begins With Healthy Gums.

If you are suffering from red, swollen, or tender gums, you may have periodontal disease. Left untreated, it may lead to inflammation, bleeding, and eventually recession. As the gums pull back from the crown of the tooth, the condition may worsen. Early diagnosis and treatment can preserve the health of your teeth and gums.
