Don't wait until you lose one to realize how precious your pearly whites are.

Periodontal (gum) disease

Gum disease is caused by bacteria below the gumline.

And it’s the #1 cause of adult tooth loss in the United States.

Even so, many people are tempted to ignore their dentist’s advice to treat gum disease in its early stages.

You have a choice. Do more now, or allow the disease to progress further. Left untreated, gum disease may lead to more serious problems that may require painful and expensive surgery. They can also lead to tooth loss.

Your dental professional can perform scaling and root planing (SRP), applying ARESTIN®, to help you treat moderate to severe gum disease.
