The cornerstone of your oral health and beautiful smile is your gums. While you brush and floss your teeth, it is your gums that are protected through the removal of food, bacteria and plaque through good oral hygiene. But even with good home oral hygiene habits and general dental care, it is possible to begin to have gum disease that can affect your oral and overall health. At Ambler Dental Care, we help our patients in Ambler, Blue Bell, Horsham and the surrounding communtities prevent and treat gum disease for optimal health.
Did you know that gum disease can lead to tooth loss and many other serious health issues? It is not just your teeth that are at risk. Gum disease, if left unchecked, can become serious periodontitis that can put you at risk for health problems such as stroke, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular issues and pregnancy complications.
