Healthy gums are an important part of overall health. Gum disease is linked to other health concerns, including diabetes, heart attacks and strokes. Make an appointment with us in our Chaska and Mound, MN dental offices to examine your condition and begin gum treatment as needed.
Your gums, ligaments and jaw bones provide the foundational structure for your teeth. These areas are called the periodontium. In the same way that a poor foundation could damage a house, when the periodontium is unhealthy, the health of your teeth is also put into jeopardy. The following symptoms could be an indication of gum disease: puffy, red or bleeding gums; regularly foul breath; receding gums; loose teeth and changes in the positioning or bite of your teeth. At West Lakes Dentistry, we can evaluate your symptoms, provide diagnosis and offer several options for treatment of gum disease. Call today.
