Periodontal Treatment - Cedar Rapids, IA
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about one in every two American adults, ages 30 years and up, have gum disease. Gum disease, AKA periodontal disease, is the infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Many people don’t even realize they have it because it’s often painless.
Gum disease occurs from plaque build-up that turns into calculus or tartar. Left untreated, tartar can destroy teeth and supporting bones, leading to swollen bleeding gums and tooth loss. If you think you may have gum disease, please contact our team at Dental Arts Dr. Deb Cassill . We specialize in safe and comfortable periodontal treatments that help save smiles.
