Gum Disease Therapy for Lenexa Residents
Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss for American adults. It results when naturally-occurring bacteria forms deposits that build up on and between your teeth. The body reacts as it does to any infection, with inflammation. This results in bleeding gums and may eventually cause soft-tissue and bone loss around the teeth. Bleeding also allows the bacteria to enter into the bloodstream, causing protein release that can damage other systems in the body.
If Dr. James Craig and finds signs of gum disease at your checkup, he'll take action to help you reverse the condition & protect against swollen gums. With proper professional care and thorough, simple hygiene habits at home, healthy gums are attainable and worth it!
