If gingivitis is left untreated or neglected, it can progress into periodontitis. A major cause of adult tooth loss is gingivitis and periodontitis.
In addition, gingivitis has been connected and linked to heart disease, stroke, and even diabetes.
Our Dentist will provide a complete checkup to determine any potential problems such as tooth decay, cracks and gum disease. We will also happily replace older, worn-out dental work, such as metal fillings and discoloured crowns.
With a comprehensive exam every six months, we can manage small dental problems before they grow into more larger complicated issues. Untreated cavities can grow rapidly and destroy an entire tooth, a cracked tooth may break off if not discovered and corrected, and gum disease can advance if not detected early.
