Protect Your Gums. Maintain Your Health.

Dentistry doesn’t only focus on your teeth; it addresses gum health, too.

The Problem

Today, over 85 percent of the population has some form of periodontal (gum) disease. The problem is that gum disease is very elusive. Often, it is misdiagnosed or simply ignored.

The Symptoms

Common symptoms include bleeding, tenderness, and inflammation. However, gums may recede, leaving teeth vulnerable to decay, abscesses, and tooth loss – without any symptoms.

The Importance

Healthy gums are essential for attractive, comfortable, functional teeth. But what may surprise you is that healthy gums are essential to good overall health, too.

“I have been to several dentists in my 55 years but I have never found one as wonderful of a person and a dentist. I have told everybody that I can about Dr. Mitchmore and staff.”

Gums & Your Body

Studies show periodontal disease can affect your full body health – so make gum health a priority.
The pockets of bacteria hiding below the gum line cause more than bad breath. Diseased gums increase your risk of:

Oral bacteria that enter the bloodstream may cause the liver to produce more proteins such as C-reactive protein, one of the known factors in many diseases.

There is good news. Gum disease is easily treatable – even reversible. Best of all, with the advancements made in modern dentistry, periodontal therapy is more comfortable, thorough, and effective than ever before.
