Do you know how important the condition of you gums is to your general health? Most people are not aware of the fact that many life-impacting illnesses such as stroke, type 2 diabetes, and heart problems can be linked to gum disease. Keeping your gums in good health can keep you out of the doctor’s office for these debilitating problems. When you come for an oral exam at Smile Avenue Family Dentistry located at Cypress TX our hygienist will check your gums to see if you need periodontal care.
Patients with gingivitis will be given a treatment plan so that the disease can be brought under control before it has an opportunity to become worse. Early treatment of gum disease prevents a host of serious issues including gum recession and loss of teeth along with the earlier mention of general health problems.
