A Healthy Smile Depends on Your Gums

Soft Tissue Forms the
Foundation for Your Smile

If your gums bleed when you brush and floss, you may be one of the nearly 50% of adults aged 30 and older in the U.S. with some degree of gum disease. Inadequate brushing and flossing can cause a sticky film of bacteria (plaque) to build up on your teeth and lead to gingivitis, the mildest form of periodontal disease. When gum disease progresses unchecked, plaque turns into tartar, leading to advanced gum disease called periodontitis, formation of periodontal pockets, a gum infection, bone damage, and eventual tooth loss.

If you’re experiencing signs of gum disease, we encourage you to schedule prompt gum disease treatment in Wallingford, CT, to protect your smile, oral health, and overall well-being. Periodontal disease can have far-reaching effects beyond oral health, including an increased risk of heart disease, diabetes, some male cancers, and pregnancy complications. With regular professional care, periodontal disease treatment at Wolfy Dental Group, and proper oral health habits, gum disease doesn’t have to threaten your oral or general health again!
