Do you know the leading cause of tooth loss in the United States? It’s gum disease, also known as periodontal disease.
This is caused by bacteria. By some estimates, around 80 percent of people have some form of gum disease at any time. This is why brushing, flossing, and regular visits to Kirchner Dental are so important.
At our dentist office in Jeffersonville, IN, we will examine your mouth for signs of gum disease. If needed, we offer non-surgical gum disease treatments, and we can give you tips on preventing periodontal problems.
