Many people experience some form of periodontal disease, often without realizing it. Periodontal disease is chiefly responsible for adult tooth loss, bleeding gums, bad breath, and receding gums. The truth is, it is easily prevented with proper hygiene and home care and with professional treatment. If diagnosed in its early stages, gum disease treatments are easier, less invasive, and more effective than if treatment is delayed. Your visit with Dr. Lawson-Myers includes a complete evaluation of your gums and supportive tissues. At Liguanea Family Dental, you will have access to advanced periodontal therapy to heal and restore your oral health.
