Gum Disease Therapy in Tumwater, WA
When caring for your teeth at home, it is all too easy to neglect your gums. This is one reason that gum disease is such a widespread problem in the United States. Not only is gum disease a major cause of tooth loss, but gum infections have also been linked to an increased risk of heart problems, diabetes complications, and other systemic health issues.
We take both your oral health and overall health seriously at Tyee Dental. Dr. Merrell and his team carefully inspect your gums during every cleaning. We are also sure to sanitize your gums thoroughly and recommend appropriate treatments if we discover periodontal problems.
Our gum treatments include deep gum cleanings and other advanced periodontal therapies. Remember, gum problems don’t need to wait until your next regular appointment. Call us right away at (360) 352-5100 if you notice gum pain, bleeding, soreness, swelling, or other issues.
