Gum disease has long ranked as the leading cause of tooth loss among US adults. In recent dental literature, it was referred to as “the silent epidemic” of our nation by the surgeon general. Part of the difficulty with gum disease is that it often develops a symptomatically. Without the oversight of a dental professional, gum disease can continue to progress for years without the patient knowing it. The good news about 94116 gum disease is that it’s almost entirely preventable. By making the commitment to schedule semi-annual checkups at our office, we can routinely monitor the health of your gums, teeth and jaw; checking for gum disease and a sweeping range of common dental conditions. And, when it’s caught early on, gum disease can be reversed with a professional teeth cleaning, regular brushing and flossing, and a continued commitment to scheduling checkups with your dentist twice a year. However, if allow to progress to a more advanced stage,more extensive therapy and deeper cleanings may be required to halt the progression of the disease and help restore your oral health.
