Periodontal disease better known as “Gum Disease” can not only destroy a person’s oral health but has also been linked with other health problems, such as cardiovascular disease, stroke and bacterial pneumonia.
Gum disease is one of the most common dental problems adults face, but it can begin at just about any age. Gum disease often develops slowly and without causing any pain. Sometimes no signs of disease are detected until the teeth are at serious risk of loss, or when it is already “too late”.
In providing the patient with the best in care, we have a certified gum specialist (periodontist) as part of our team. Dr. Young can help to prevent, treat and reverse the early stages of gum disease by assessing the current status of the gums, creating a plan to address any concerns and then providing all necessary care to improve one’s condition.
