Learning about periodontal disease

Periodontal & Gum Disease


Periodontal disease is one of the most common oral issues in the United States. The CDC estimates that gum disease affects over half of all Americans. And in adults aged 65+, this estimate rises to nearly 70%. Your 6-month cleanings and exams are the best way to catch and monitor gum disease. But if you suspect an issue, make an appointment with Buckwalter Dental Care right away. From minor gingivitis to aggressive periodontitis, Dr. Darrah and team can set you up with a treatment plan to restore your gums to health.

Wisdom Tooth
