The Silent Threat To Oral Health

When you visit our office for a hygiene examination and cleaning, we do more than inspect your mouth for decay. We also look for other conditions that can bring about severe damage to your oral health. One of these conditions is gum disease. Detecting gum disease on your own is virtually impossible because it doesn’t cause discomfort, leaving your mouth open to severe consequences if not detected in the early stages and treated in a timely manner. Untreated gum disease can progress to a point where it can become a serious threat not only to your oral health, but to your overall health as well.
