Gum disease, such as gingivitis or periodontitis, is not something to ignore. Left to itself, it will take your teeth. It all starts with the ever-present bacteria that we try to keep at bay with our regular brushing and flossing. Bacteria live in plaque, that invisible sticky film that continually forms on our teeth. The toxins they produce irritate the gums, which become red and swollen and start to bleed. Pockets form between gums and teeth, allowing infection to develop which burrows through the gums right into the bone supporting the teeth.
Prevention is best, and early detection next best. Dr. Mulder will spot it immediately and help you avoid much pain and dental deterioration.
