Gum disease is more common than you might think. At Aspen Ridge Dental in Casper, we see patients with gum disease almost every day. Some patients aren’t even aware they have it until we diagnose it. Fortunately, gum disease can be treated.
What is gum disease? Also known as ‘periodontal disease’, it is an inflammation or infection of the gums. Gum disease can be very painful in some conditions, and can limit your ability to eat normally. In some cases, it can affect your smile, and can create cosmetic concerns.
If left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to irreversible damage such as tooth loss. When caught early and treated, it can be managed and cured. The best prevention is to practice good dental hygiene to keep periodontal disease at bay.
One of the best ways to prevent gum disease is to get a regular dental check up at Aspen Ridge Dental in Casper. But if you’re diagnosed, we have effective gum disease treatment. We also offer family dentistry services. Schedule your next cleaning and checkup with us today.
