The bad news: Gum disease is the most common cause of lost teeth among adults. The good news: You typically don’t lose teeth in the early stages of gum disease. It’s easy for our Montgomery, AL dentists to treat early stage gum disease with a thorough dental cleaning or a special deep-cleaning treatment called scaling and root planing.

Even if gum disease has advanced to a later stage, our dentists can use a laser to easily remove infected tissue and restore your gums to health. With a laser, there is little if any bleeding and no stitches. So your recovery will be quick and comfortable.

Take this quiz to see if you’re showing signs of gum disease. Then call Carmichael Dental Care at 334-600-1423 to schedule an exam.
