Gum disease (periodontal disease) is harmful to both your oral and overall health, but Dr. Jose-Luis Ruiz can treat it with periodontal therapy. When plaque and tartar extend under the gum line, they can infect the tissue there and cause inflammation. This condition can become more serious unless you see out dentist for antibiotics, deep cleanings, and other procedures. We also offer gum disease prevention to maintain your gum health.
