It is a well established fact, that one half of the population does not have a dentist! Many people feel that “what they don’t know, won’t hurt them!”. In fact, what they don’t know can KILL them! 80% of the population has some degree of gum disease, and the ones that do not see a dentist on a regular schedule are sure to be on the high end. Gum disease does not hurt until the very late stages. At some point, people may notice bad breath, bleeding of the gums, teeth becoming loose etc. These are all signs. What you won’t feel is the damage it could be doing to your heart and other vital organs. Just like you can’t feel your cholesterol being high, you won’t “feel” the damage to your heart until it is too late. Here at our Indianapolis office, we are well trained and equipped to treat gum disease. Don’t worry if you are apprehensive, we can use Sedation Dentistry to make you feel like you are sleeping thru the entire visit. If you or a loved one has not been to a dentist in the past year, please keep us in mind. This is the first step in keeping your teeth for the longevity of your life! We are located in Indianapolis, just south of the St. Francis South Campus on Emerson Avenue, just north of Greenwood! We hope to see you soon!
