The word periodontal actually means around the tooth, so when you have been diagnosed with periodontal disease, the gums and the bone that support your teeth are the areas that are typically affected.
Without proper oral hygiene at home along with a preventative care program with your dentist, plaque and tartar will begin to build up which will destroy your gums and bone.
The dental care team at Mountain Vista Dental Care is here to educate you on the damage that periodontal disease can have on your teeth and to assist you in preventing periodontal disease.
