Gum Disease

Bacterial infection in the gums or dental plaque can occur from improper cleaning and improper preventive measures or any number of health problems.   Researchers generally believe that there is a definitive link between your mouth’s health and the health of your entire body from a wholistic standpoint.

Periodontal disease (or gum disease), whether from a buildup of plaque or of harmful bacteria, can start with symptoms such as bleeding or swollen gums and, if left untreated, can lead to calcification, various types of gum disease, or other issues which can fundamentally harm the structures that support your teeth.
