Healthy gums are a must for good oral and overall health. They keep your teeth in their proper positions and protect your smile from cavities. They also provide a great line of defense between your body and oral bacteria, which, among other things, can contribute to cardiovascular and respiratory problems, can create complications for diabetes and can even play a role in the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. If you are concerned about the health of your gums, call Martin Dentistry at 209-951-4251 for an appointment with our dentists. Dr. Doug, Dr. Dax or Dr. Sky can talk with you about our periodontal treatments in Stockton, California.
