Gum Disease & Your Health

Cosmetic Dentistry | 3 | Gregory Allen Kerbel DDS, PPLC | Garland, TX

When people consider the health and appearance of their smiles, they tend to think about their teeth. While your pearly whites are important, of course, they would not even be in your mouth without the support of your hardworking gums.

Gum disease afflicts half of Americans over the age of thirty, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Not only that, but it — and not tooth decay — is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. And a growing body of research indicates that the health of your gums can have direct consequences on your overall health.

Periodontal disease often begins without obvious symptoms. Regular checkups are important to catch it early on. For gum disease prevention and treatment in East Dallas, TX, call Gregory Allen Kerbel, DDS, PLLC at 972-360-9944. Or request an appointment via our online form.
