The Truth on Gum Disease

Posted .

Did you know, gum disease can cause serious problems to your smile? Well, it’s true! Gum disease oftentimes goes unnoticed until it becomes too late to save a tooth. That is why, here at All Care Dentistry, we strive to help you keep your smile healthy and strong for years to come.

Keeping up with your six-month appointment regularly is vital to oral health. Your dentist, Dr. David Powell in Murray, Utah, is trained to catch gum disease and help you turn gum disease around, bringing your smile into pristine oral health. During a typical oral health exam, your dentist will also check for any oral cancers you might have to hide along your gums with gum disease.

Some warning signs of gum disease include bleeding gums, swollen gums, puss in gums, loose teeth, gums receding from the teeth, and even tooth loss, which can lead to bone loss. However, preventing gum disease, or stopping it in the early phases, can help your gums and teeth stay healthy and strong.

If you would like to come in for a dental checkup or feel it’s time to get your smile examined, please call us today at 801-266-1414 to set up an appointment. Our friendly staff is happy to help in any way we can! So, call us today and make an appointment. Let today be the day your smile glows healthy and bright.
