Three out of four Americans have gum disease, which can be more damaging to oral health than cavities. There is little to no pain associated with the early stage of gum disease, so many people are unaware they are affected. Untreated, gum disease can lead to painful, tender gums, bad breath, jaw deterioration and tooth loss. The bacteria associated with gum disease can also negatively impact vital systems of the body, including the heart, lungs, and kidneys.
Gum health is of primary concern at Arrowhead Family Dental . Our hygienists specialize in the identification of bacterial infection, and customize treatment for each individual patient according to their specific needs. They use the latest in ultrasonic and laser instruments to treat and repair damaged tissues, and to restore oral health. Caring for your smile goes beyond creating straight, bright teeth; a great smile begins with pink, healthy gums.
