Many people do not understand just how important it is to have healthy gums. Your gums help your smile look its best and hold your teeth in place. They also protect your teeth from dental caries, and moreover, they protect your body from dangerous oral bacteria. In fact, gum disease has been linked to heart and respiratory issues and complications for people who live with diabetes. There is also evidence that gum health plays a role in the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. Our dentist, Dr. Maricela Murillo, and our team offer periodontal treatments in San Diego, California.
