Gum Treatment & Periodontal Disease in Park City, UT
Gum disease, known as Periodontal disease, is an infection of the gum and bone, the tissues that support your teeth. As the gum tissues are damaged, pockets of infection form around them, becoming larger as the infection increases. In the pockets of infection, bacteria excrete toxins, which cause inflammation. As the infection progresses, the gum tissue and bone recede from the teeth, which causes the teeth to become mobile and fall out.
If you are concerned about gum disease and live in Park City area, please contact our office to schedule a consultation.
