Healthy gums are an absolute necessity. They help keep your teeth in place and protect your smile from dental caries. They also enhance the appearance of your smile, but more importantly, they protect your body from oral bacteria that can contribute to cardiovascular and respiratory problems. In fact, gum disease has been linked to Alzheimer’s disease. At Big Creek Family Dentistry, our dentist and team offer periodontal treatments in Roswell, Georgia. If you have concerns about the health of your gums, call 770-992-3711 for your appointment with Dr. Robert Murfree.
