If left untreated, gum disease—also called periodontal disease—can cause you to lose bone in your jaw and eventually lose teeth. Gum disease can also affect your entire health—research is starting to show that it may be linked to problems such as diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.
We diagnose and treat gum disease in our office. We may suggest the use of Arestin, a local antibiotic that has been shown to be very effective in halting the progression of periodontal disease.
