Is it possible to turn my gum disease around?
Yes, it is possible to address gum disease (also known as periodontitis). Periodontitis is an infection of the gums and bone around the teeth which causes bone loss and eventual loosening and loss of teeth. This infection also adversely affects your general health and has been linked to heart disease, diabetes and fetal development during pregnancy.
Many times, if gum disease is treated in a timely manner, it can be treated with a non-surgical approach which is simple, comfortable and far less costly than if it is allowed to advance.
Working as a team Dr. Joe and our hygienists will devise a personalized treatment plan which will be carried out at our office. We have seen cases where patients have thought they had no options but to accept gum disease and loss of teeth and, as a result of our dental procedures and care, have seen dramatic improvements in their gums and overall health.
The most important step is to take action and contact us at St. Anthony Village Dental Care at 612-781-9270 to get you on your way to better oral health!
