It’s human to take your health for granted. Unfortunately, things break down when you neglect them, your teeth and gums are included. When you don’t brush or floss regularly, plaque a sticky film filled with bacteria, forms on your teeth. Plaque can infect your gums and the sulcus, the V-shaped crevice just below the gum line. At this stage, the infection is called gingivitis, if it progresses , it’s called periodontitis. Both are forms of periodontal disease.

Warning signs of periodontal disease are:

– spaces developing between your teeth

– pus between your teeth

– loose teeth

– receding gums

Fortunately, gingivitis is reversible with professional care and good home dental care. Please call our office to make appointment.
