Gum Disease Treatment in Braintree, MA
Maintaining a healthy mouth starts with the gums. We make sure to closely examine gums for signs of periodontal disease during every hygiene appointment.
Gum disease is usually caused by plaque, a sticky film of bacteria that constantly forms on teeth. Plaque is usually the main culprit behind gum disease. Improper oral hygiene routines can lead to gums becoming irritated and inflamed. This irritated tissue can open up pockets as it separates from teeth. Bacteria then move into these open spaces and can destroy tooth support structure. Come see us or give us a call to see how we can help you in your fight against gum disease.
