Periodontal disease is a common oral health problem. A majority of people will develop gum disease at one time or another. The good news is you can treat this problem fairly easily. The bad news is that it can increase your risk of tooth loss, diabetes complications, heart disease, and other health concerns.

We offer a nonsurgical gum disease treatment at our practice, which our own Dr. Luis Dancausse discusses in the video below. Symptoms like red, swollen gums or bleeding gums are signs of early infections. Lingering bad breath, sore gums, and loose teeth could indicate a more serious infection.

Just know that we are here to help whether you want to prevent or need to treat periodontal problems. Call 704-766-8662 or fill out our online form to plan your visit to McNulty & Dancausse General Dentistry in Charlotte, NC.
