Are Your Gums Healthy?
How can we know when we have periodontal disease? How can you prevent it? There are many factors that contribute to periodontal disease like excessive build up of plaque due to not flossing regularly or not having regular cleanings from your family dentist. If your gums are swollen and bleed easily when you floss, you may need to be treated for periodontal disease. A dentist who specilalizes in gum disease, is called a periodontist. Dr. Mark Mangelson can help you decide the best course of action. If you are looking for a periodontist in Utah, Salt Lake City or Murray area, call Mark Mangelson, Periodontist DDS MS, a board certified periodontist to assist with your dental needs.
