Gum Disease - Omaha Cosmetic Dentist - Brian Zuerlein DDS

Gum disease has become so common that some think it’s normal.

For us, that’s just scary! Gum disease is a chronic inflammatory condition that attacks your gums, along with the bones and ligaments that support your teeth. It can damage your appearance and even your entire body!

Important Things To Know About Gum Disease:

  1. It appears silently without symptoms and progresses slowly so you hardly notice
    until swollen and bleeding gums coupled with bad breath seem normal.
  2. Its severity can worsen due to inherited susceptibility, smoking, inconsistent home care,
    diet, and medications.
  3. Gum disease has been linked to many systemic illnesses including diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, osteoporosis, cancers, dementia, and Alzheimer’s.

We can help prevent and even reverse the earliest signs of gum disease. If you are like half of people aged 30 or older and already have gum disease, we can help you find relief.
