Periodontal (gum) disease has been linked to many serious health disorders, including heart disease, stroke, and diabetes, which is why we do our best to prevent and treat it. Periodontal disease occurs when plaque and calculus are allowed to build up on the teeth, so it is very important to brush twice a day, floss daily, and visit our office as recommended by Dr. Barry LeJeune and our hygienist. For more information about treatments for gum disease in Hampton, Virginia, and to schedule an appointment with our dentist, contact our office today.
