The health of your gums is as important as protecting your teeth. The gums are susceptible to gum disease which can lead to infection, bone and tooth loss, and a higher risk for serious health conditions like stroke or type 2 diabetes. Gum disease can be prevented and treated at Rolling Hills Dentistry, your source for quality dental care in Danbury.
Gum disease starts essentially as an irritation and infection of the gum tissue. Treatment includes removing the source of irritation and infection while medicating the gums to improve healing. At the early stages, treatment with deep cleanings and medication can reverse this disease; later stages of gum or periodontal disease may require more invasive approaches, including surgery.
