A leading cause of tooth loss in adults, gum disease can have serious consequences. At Waked Dental, we focus not just on your teeth, but on the health of your gums as well. If you’re experiencing red, swollen, bleeding, or receding gums, it’s time for a periodontal check-up. Plaque is a sticky, colorless film that can harden into tartar if not removed. We combat moderate to severe cases of periodontitis with Arestin, a medication used to fight the effects of plaque bacteria. Your gums are just as important to a beautiful, healthy smile as your teeth, so don’t neglect appropriate periodontal care. Discuss your options with our hygienists today!
