Periodontal Care

Over 60% of adults are at-risk of developing gum disease after the age of 50. At Midtown Doral Dental, we are committed to ensuring that your dental health is always in good shape. Gum disease is a serious issue that needs to be treated as soon as possible.

What is Periodontal Disease?

Periodontal (gum) disease is a condition that affects the gums and teeth due to a buildup of bacteria in the mouth. A white sticky substance, known as plaque, accumulates from an overgrowth of untreated bacteria. Over time, plaque can become embedded into teeth and along the gum line causing gum inflammation and tooth loss.
