We all do it. Put off going to the dentist. Let our dental health slide. Maybe even over brush or under brush but after a while you can’t ignore the signs. You may have gum disease.
Truth is, gum disease is a big threat to the mouth and periodontics help fight against even the most insidious aspects of the disease. Getting a check-up with Dr. Villar is an excellent first step.
What is Gum Disease?
There are several types of gum disease. Periodontal diseases include gingivitis and periodontitis. They are serious infections that, left untreated, can lead to tooth loss.
The word periodontal literally means “around the tooth.” Skilled in advanced periodontics, Dr. Villar finds the cause of the issues and builds a plan so that you get on track and stay on track with your teeth and gum preventative care.
I didn’t know that I had gum disease. I just had so many little issues that I let go over time. Dr. Villar got all of the infection and set me right. It makes a big difference when you get that kind of treatment. – Jeff
