Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. The treatment methods that our dentists diagnose will depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has progressed.

Applying a fluoride varnish protects a child’s primary (first) teeth from decay. Once children have their permanent teeth, dental sealants may be applied for the protection of the back teeth or molars.
Bruxism (teeth grinding) can cause moderate to severe long-term damage to teeth. Constant grinding wears down the surface of the tooth, exposing the soft dentin beneath the enamel. This is why it’s important to protect your teeth while you sleep by wearing a bite guard.
