Periodontal disease, or gum disease, is one of the leading causes of adult tooth loss. Gum disease is an infection of the gums caused by bacteria in plaque. Over time, the gum tissue may begin to weaken causing the teeth to shift and eventually fall out.
Gum disease is a serious oral health concern that compromises the health and function of your gums, teeth, and jaw bone. Treating gum disease during the early stages may reduce your risk of severe damage to your teeth and gums.
San Ramon, CA Periodontist, Dr. Janice Kaeley performs periodontal screening at all routine preventive care visits. We recommend patients visit our San Ramon dental office at least twice a year for routine dental exams and teeth cleanings. Our goal is to identify and treat all complex dental problems with personalized, effective solutions.
