You teeth need a foundation of healthy gums and strong bone

Gums and the bones surrounding your teeth are all part of dentistry – specifically, periodontics.

Like the foundation of a house, it's essential that your teeth have a solid placement within healthy gums and strong bone.

DeCo Dental Family and Cosmetic Dentistry is your source for comprehensive periodontics advice and procedures.

Periodontal disease (gum disease) is a chronic bacterial infection that affects the gums and bone supporting your teeth. Our team can help.

If you suspect you may be suffering from gum disease, here’s what you need to know …

Symptoms of Periodontal Disease:

  • Swollen, puffy and bleeding gums
  • Spaces between teeth
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Bad breath
  • Loose teeth

If not adequately treated, periodontal disease can result in loose teeth and ultimately tooth loss. Early detection and treatment are the key to successful treatment of gum disease in Fenton.

Preventing Periodontal Disease:

  • Brush and floss your teeth daily
  • See your dentist regularly for professional cleaning and monitoring
  • If diagnosed with periodontal disease, get treatment early

Very professional and very considerate. They strive to make me feel comfortable knowing that I tend to be fearful of dental work.
