Gum disease is an infection in the gums that surround your teeth, typically caused by a buildup of plaque and tartar. If left untreated, gum disease can cause serious problems in your oral and overall health. At Bella Dental Services, Dr. Roderick Cooper, his associate doctors, and our team work hard to catch the signs of gum disease early on and to provide appropriate and effective treatments. With minor gum disease, our dentists may recommend visiting our office every few months for a professional gum cleaning. In more extreme cases, you may require surgery or other advanced procedures. We invite you to contact us at (770) 921-9000 today to schedule your appointment and receive gentle treatment for gum disease in Tucker, Georgia, or Clarkston or Tucker.
