Periodontal

Therapy

A big part of keeping your oral health in excellent condition is keeping your gums fresh, clean, and healthy. Periodontal disease is an infection of the gums caused by bacteria in the mouth. These bacteria attack your gums causing bleeding, bad breath, chewing problems, and, in extreme cases, tooth loss. Plaque is a sticky, film buildup on your teeth that serve as a home for these bacteria. If your gums appear swollen or red or you have bleeding when you brush or floss, then it’s time to see DR. VIRGILIO GUTIERREZ at Smile Artisans for a consultation.
