When it comes to having an overall healthy smile, it is important to keep your teeth and that which holds them healthy. Your jawbones and gum tissue are responsible for holding your teeth firmly into their place, without them being healthy, your teeth will fall out. At Laurence Palmer DD we recommend and encourage all of our Ogden, Utah patients to take excellent care of their teeth at home and stay up to date with their in-office professional cleanings.
Due to the failure to keep teeth clean, plaque and tartar build-up can cause an infection and start the periodontal disease. At the beginning of the periodontal disease, we diagnose gingivitis.
