Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is an infection of the tissues that support your teeth. It is a major cause of tooth loss in adults. Because gum disease is usually painless, you may not know you have it. At each regular dental checkup, we will measure the depth of the shallow v-shaped crevice between your tooth and gums to see how healthy your gums are. Periodontal treatment in the early stages is crucial to avoid negative effects of gum disease such as teeth becoming loose, fall out, or have to be removed. Contact our dental office in Weston, FL to request an appointment for a consultation at (954)384-7505.
