A healthy mouth is the foundation of a healthy body, and keeping your teeth and gums clean is key to preventing periodontal disease.
Periodontal disease is inflamed bacteria between the gums that result in decay. The damage from tartar and plaque build-up can infect gums, teeth, nerves, and the bones that support the mouth—stages of periodontitis range from mild to severe.
The best way to prevent periodontitis is with regular checkups with your dentist at Burien Family Dentistry. We provide services to help minimize the effect of periodontitis by stopping it and strengthening your oral hygiene. If your mouth has damage due to periodontal disease, we have the solutions to repair and reconstruct the smile you deserve.
