Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is an infection of the gums surrounding your teeth. Gum disease is one of the top reasons for tooth loss in adults, and because it is virtually pain-free, many patients do not know they have the disease. During each regular checkup, our dentists and dental team will check for signs of periodontal disease by measuring the space between your teeth and gums. Please call 316-788-2118 to set up a consultation with Dr. Ysidro, Dr. Barakeh or associates for gum disease treatment in Derby, Kansas. We look forward to seeing you at Dental Professionals LLC.
