Gum Disease is a common dental problem in America. On this page we list a range of health issues that can be potentially caused or in some cases, linked, to gum disease. As you can see by reviewing the list below, gum disease can have very serious consequences, as it can allow toxins to enter the bloodstream.
The best course of action is to ensure that you clean your teeth at home (we can instruct you on the best ways to do that) and visit our San Marcos dental office for twice yearly cleanings and monitoring of your oral health. If needed, Adriatic Dental offers several very effective gum disease treatments in our San Marcos Dental Office.
