Periodontal Therapy Can Save You from Gum Disease
We’re often so preoccupied with the health and appearance of our teeth that it’s easy to forget their vital support system just underneath: the gums. Unfortunately, the gum tissue is just as susceptible to infection as enamel is, if not more so. Gum disease (also known as periodontal disease) is one of the most common health problems in the world, as well as the leading cause of adult tooth loss in the United States. At Legacy Dental SA, our team takes this threat to your well-being very seriously, and we offer effective therapy options that can revitalize the gums and improve your oral health.
Common warning signs of gum disease include bleeding, swollen, or overly red gum tissue, excessive bad breath, and a receding gum line. If you notice any of these symptoms, please don’t hesitate to contact our San Antonio practice today and schedule an appointment with Dr. Eck. We welcome new patients from Castle Hills Forest and other surrounding neighborhoods.
