At McMillan Family Dental, we encourage patients to visit our office for routine hygiene examinations. Not only are these appointments necessary to look for signs of tooth decay, but we also look for other common conditions that can be rather severe if not detected early and treated in a timely manner. One such condition is gum disease. Gum disease, also commonly known as periodontal disease, is a serious gum infection caused by bacterial growth along the gumline and around the base of the tooth. When gum disease is left untreated, it will continue to progress and can cause serious complications such as tooth loss and deterioration of the jawbone.
