You depend on your gums far more than you realize. Obviously, they support your teeth, but they are also your first line of defense against the bacteria that is present in your mouth. If your gums become compromised by periodontal disease, you can experience significant oral and general health problems. At Picofazzi Dental, our dentist, Dr. Franco Picofazzi, can treat the effects of gum disease. If you are concerned about the health of your gums, call 610-397-1020 today to schedule your appointment.
