Our Office Is Prepared To Help You Maintain Healthy Gums

Problems with cavities should not be taken lightly, but it is important to remember that dental decay is not the only threat to your oral health. Another concern that you should take seriously concerns the condition of your gums. Bacteria that build up on our teeth can make their way below the gum line in time. When they do this, they can cause an infection known as gingivitis, which can progress to a more serious form of gum disease that is difficult to manage. At our Upton, MA dentist’s office, we are ready to assist you if gingivitis is impacting your well-being. When it is called for, we can also introduce patients to our on site periodontist, who can help with more severe problems around gum disease. (more…)
