Among the causes for periodontal (gum) disease are genetic susceptibility, smoking, and other illnesses like diabetes. Periodontal maintenance involves removing plaque and tartar from above and below the gum line. Most gum diseases are preventable with proper oral hygiene. However, what can start out as gingivitis (inflamed or bleeding gums) can quickly turn into periodontitis. In such cases, gums pull away from the tooth to create “pockets,” thereby exposing a dental root to infection. It can also lead to prolonged bad breath, loose teeth, painful chewing and other complications.

Evergrin Dental has been the best dental practice I’ve ever gone to. As a kid, I was always afraid of dentist, but this place has made it a very relaxing event. They always explain in detail why they’re doing certain things and are more than accommodating to my needs.

WONDERFUL! I CAN’T IMAGINE A MORE CARING, TALENTED, KNOWLEDGEABLE DENTIST THAN DR. DO. ON TOP OF ALL THAT, SHE IS A PLEASURE TO BE WITH. I REALLY CAN’T DO HER JUSTICE. I TELL ALL MY FRIENDS ABOUT HER. IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR A DENTIST THAT REALLY CARES ABOUT HER PATIENTS, DR. DO IS THE PLACE TO GO.
