Your gum health is vital to more than just a beautiful smile. When gum disease takes hold, it can be detrimental to your overall health and be a catalyst to other serious medical issues. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) indicates that periodontitis affects about 50% of American adults, making it a major concern for many people.
At Ambler Dental Care, we have seen how periodontitis can destroy oral health and lead to tooth loss. We also understand the dangers that this disease poses to our patients’ health. Periodontitis has been linked to type 2 diabetes and stroke, among other serious medical conditions. As part of our general dental treatments, we offer periodontal therapy to help our patients fight severe gum disease and restore their oral and overall health.
