Periodontal disease (also called gum disease or gingivitis) refers to the infection of the supportive tissues of the mouth due to toxic bacteria found in plaque. Many individuals suffer from some degree of gum disease. Left untreated, gum disease can cause tooth loss, break down of the soft tissue in the mouth, and jaw and other significant health problems. Your doctors at DentalWorks focus on preventative dentistry and assess your periodontal health. If needed, they will conduct the appropriate therapy to restore your oral health.
