One of the leading causes of tooth decay and tooth loss is periodontal disease. This is the later stage of gingivitis also known as gum disease. Gingivitis occurs with more than half of adults. While gingivitis is treatable with proper teeth cleaning and daily home care, periodontal disease is a much more serious problem. Maintain regular dental visits to have your teeth cleaned by a professional in order to prevent gingivitis from advancing into periodontal disease.
Schedule a dental visit to Fort Collins Family Dentist that involves a teeth cleaning and X rays of your teeth and gums. This will allow your dentist to identify early stages of gum disease. By stopping gum disease in the early stages you are less likely to experience tooth decay, receding gums and tooth loss. Let the dental professionals at Rocky Mountain Dental Care get your teeth into shape with a cleaning visit.
