Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. It is a major cause of tooth loss in adults. Because gum disease is usually painless, you may not know you have it. Also referred to as a periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth. Scaling and Root Planning will be recommended and our clinical staff is here to address and correct your gum problems. Call Today 512-271-1298.
