Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in the United States and nearly 47.2% of people aged 30 years old and older have some stage of periodontal disease. At Massa Dental Center, we believe that the key to a healthy smile is preventive dentistry and treating problems in their earliest stages. With preventive dentistry and early treatments, you reduce your risk for both tooth loss and bone loss.
To prevent gum disease from damaging your oral health, knowing the warning signs of its early stages can help you get treatment early.
If you notice any of the following signs, make sure to contact our Naples dental office for a consultation.
