You probably know that healthy gums are good for your smile, but did you know that they are good for your body, too? In fact, 60 percent of people who have heart conditions also have active gum disease. Periodontal disease has also been linked to complications with diabetes, low birth weight and premature delivery, and even respiratory problems. Our dentist can help your fight gum disease and protect your health with our periodontal treatments in Elk Grove, California. If you have noticed the signs of gum disease, call Camden Dental Care at 916-686-2888 and make an appointment to talk with Dr. Raju Dhariwal about Perio Protect®.
