According to the Center for Disease Control, half of adults suffer from gum disease. With symptoms that are easy to ignore until permanent damage has been done, keeping routine dental visits can help keep gum disease under control. If left untreated, gum disease can diminish gum and bone tissue surrounding your teeth. This can result in tooth loss, infection, and can put you at risk for heart disease or stroke. Ensure twice-yearly visits with our dental team at Redwood Dental to keep gum disease in check and your oral health at its best.
