We understand that there are many questions you may have when choosing or when you have already chosen your dental provider.
Periodontal disease is a gum disease that is often painless. It is a bacterial infection that attacks and destroys the gum tissue and bone surrounding the teeth. The bacteria thrive in accumulated plaque and tartar. The best way to prevent gum disease is to visit the dentist regularly to have plaque and tartar cleaned away, and to maintain good oral health at home by brushing, flossing, and eating a good diet.
