Periodontal disease affects half of adults in America! Most of this is due to a lack of proper oral hygiene care. Bacteria builds up along the gums, invading the tissue surrounding the teeth. When not treated early, the symptoms worsen and the disease becomes irreversible. You may be suffering from periodontal disease if you feel tenderness, swelling gums, bleeding while toothbrushing, dark or reddish gums, bad breath that won’t go away, loosening teeth, and receding gum lines. If you notice any of these symptoms, call University Ave Dental right away to get judgement-free, quality dental care.

The sealant keeps sugars and acids from getting stuck in these natural cracks. Sealants are often used in pediatric dentistry to prevent the child from developing cavities.
