It can sneak up on you, even when you brush and floss daily. Gum disease, or periodontal disease, can be prevented, diagnosed and managed by regular dental visits.  However, if left untreated, gum disease may cause infections, gum pain, tooth loss, and can even effect your overall health. All hygienists and dentists at PERFECT TEETH™ are trained to watch for signs of these issues and inform you of the best treatment for your individual situation. A periodontist specializes in this type of dental care and is able to improve your smile by treating the gums and placing dental implants so you can feel amazing and smile with confidence again. Don’t let gum pain go untreated. A dentist is the person to call! Contact one of the PERFECT TEETH™ locations in Colorado, New Mexico or Arizona and ask our knowledgeable team about getting evaluated for gum disease and what to expect during your visit.
