Gum Disease Treatment For Maple Grove Patients
Preserve Your Dental Health
Want a healthy smile? Having strong and beautiful teeth is just the start. Healthy gums are a vital factor in both your dental and overall health.
Before engaging in any restorative or cosmetic dental work, you first need to ensure that your gums are healthy. Maple Grove dentist, Dr. Jamie Sledd, and her team members work hard to give their patients optimally healthy gums so that they can avoid gum disease and other health issues in the future.
Do I Have Periodontal Disease?
How do you know if you have gum disease? Look for signs including:
Swollen or tender gums
Red or bleeding gums
Chronic bad breath
Sores in the mouth
Gum disease is an inflammation of the gum tissue that is caused by bacteria. Periodontal disease can lead to tooth loss, jawbone deterioration, and even heart problems. You can avoid gum disease by brushing and flossing regularly and seeing your dentist regularly for cleanings.
