At Antigonish Family Dentistry we make it our practice to keep gum disease in check. We offer a full range of Gum Therapy services for patients of all ages.
While gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss for Canadian adults, in almost all cases, it's preventable.
Practicing good oral hygiene at home, and regular visits to the dentist can help ensure you have healthy gums.
What is Gum Disease?
Gum disease is the result of a bacterial infection in the gums that destroys the tissue that surrounds and supports the teeth.
Your Antigonish Family Dentistry team checks for signs of gum disease as part of any routine check-up.
That's because not all patients experience symptoms during the early stages.
