Periodontal (gum) disease is a common oral health condition that affects millions of US adults. In fact, some studies indicate as much as 80% of the population over the age of 65 struggles with some form of gum disease. The mildest type is often referred to as gingivitis, and the warning signs of this common disease are very mild. Unfortunately, gingivitis can be easily overlooked by the untrained eye. That’s why visiting a dentist regularly for a maintenance appointment is so important. You can also educate yourself on the warning signs and risk factors associated with gum disease by reading this blog post.

Periodontal disease in Lisle is, however, largely preventable and can be successfully treated through modern techniques such as those used by Drs. Frank and Jeanelle Marchese at Arbor Dental Care Ltd.

You take good care of your teeth, but what about your gums? Your gums provide necessary blood supply and nutrients to your teeth and also help anchor them to your jawbone.
