If you’ve been coming to our practice for a while now, you’ve probably heard us talk about the health of your gums, not just your smile. Many people don’t realize that gum health is critical to your oral health, which is why at Canatella Dental we’re creating awareness for gum disease.
According to the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP), nearly 50 percent of American adults have mild, moderate or severe periodontitis. This is the most advanced form of periodontal disease you can have and is detrimental to your oral health. While tooth health matters, gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss, therefore the gums must be accounted for if you want to keep your smile.
Fortunately, our team has the expertise to perform a wide variety of periodontal treatments, regardless of your gum issues. Instead of becoming another statistic, come in to get your gums treated and keep them healthy for years to come.
