Many things can affect the health of your gums. Clearly, lack of brushing and flossing is a primary cause of gum disease, or gingivitis, which involves pockets of bacteria in the gums. But smoking, diabetes and other factors also have been linked to gum disease and the resultant tooth loss.
Avoid Tooth Loss!
However, Dr. Diamandakos can restore damaged gums, avoiding bone damage and tooth loss. He begins by cleaning away plaque above and below your gum line, then smoothing out rough spots in teeth so your newly cleaned gums can easily adhere.
If periodontal disease has advanced to the stage at which surgery is necessary, Dr. Diamandakos can help in that way, also. Call Dr. Diamandakos if you’re experiencing soreness in your gums.
