Periodontal disease – or more commonly known as gum disease – is the most common dental affliction today.
Periodontal Disease is considered a silent disease because it’s painless and invisible to the untrained eye in its early stages. Regular checkups are key in early detection. The earlier gum disease can be addressed, the better the chances for a successful treatment.
Not only is gum disease a frequent cause for tooth loss in adults, but it can also prompt other health issues such as heart disease, kidney disease and Alzheimer’s. Regular dental exams and cleanings with Dr. Dbouk will help reduce your risk for gum disease and assist you in maintaining good oral hygiene practices home.
