This post from Aspen Ridge Dental in Casper WY is about gingivitis, which is early-stage gum disease. Gum disease is usually the result of poor brushing and flossing habits. When you don’t brush and floss on a regular basis there is a build-up of plaque, which hardens into a substance called tartar.
That’s why we recommend brushing and flossing twice a day. It’s the best way to prevent plaque from building up.
Advanced gum disease develops when gingivitis is not treated. Toxins build up in the plaque on your teeth and invade gum tissue. Not only that, it gets into the bone and ligaments that support the teeth. The teeth can actually become loose.
The good news is that gum disease is treatable. At Aspen Ridge Dental in Casper WY we provide top-of-the-line gum disease laser therapy, and have treated patients from throughout Riverton and Douglas. We also offer comprehensive family dentistry services. Contact us today!
