If you have gum disease, you need to have it treated immediately. Gum disease is dangerous and can lead to serious problems for your oral health. That is why our team here at Chandler Family Dental Care in Chandler, Arizona, is happy to talk to you about gum disease so you can avoid this serious problem.


Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a risky infection of your gums that support and surround your teeth. Gum disease can often be painless, so it may go ignored. It is one of the major reasons adults suffer tooth loss.  Did you know that gum disease can also lead to bone loss? Well, it’s true!


Gum disease is a serious health condition that needs to be addressed quickly. During your semi-annual visit with your dentist, Dr. Emanuel Amato, you will be examined and checked for gum disease that could be lurking in your smile. The earlier it gum disease caught the less damage could occur. That is why it is vital to address it as soon as possible. Daily habits of brushing and flossing are also important when it comes to fighting off or reversing this dangerous disease.
