Your gums are important for keeping your teeth in the proper positions, but they have a much more critical job than that. Everyone’s mouth is full of bacteria which can not only cause issues for your smile but for the rest of your body as well. Your gums help keep you safe from that bacteria and if they become compromised, you could feel the effects in other parts of your body. To keep your smile and your body healthy, our dentists, Dr. Randy Jones, Dr. James Muscott, Dr. Will Rahn and Dr. Stephen Parker, can offer a number of different periodontal treatments in Summerville, South Carolina. You can learn more about them below or call 843-873-1261 to schedule an appointment at Advanced Dental Center.
