Your gums have several different jobs, and each one of them is very important. Your gums enhance the appearance of your smile and play an important role in keeping your teeth in their proper positions. But they are also the first line of defense between your body and the bacteria in your mouth. That bacteria can lead to gum recession and tooth loss, and it has also been linked to cardiovascular and respiratory issues. There is also evidence that gum disease may play a role in the onset of cognitive problems.
Gum disease should never be ignored, and at the first signs of periodontal issues, you should call our office to meet with Dr. Victor J. Dongo. During your visit, Dr. Dongo will evaluate the health of your gums and create a course of treatment to restore your smile. Gum disease is not reversible, but the right treatments can help you control it and keep it from advancing.
