When gum disease progresses into more severe stages, it is called periodontal disease. This condition can cause your gums to recede, allowing bacteria to build up under the gum line can cause the teeth, gums, and bone to deteriorate. If you have periodontal disease, Dr. Bui may recommend that you visit AZ Dental on a regular basis for periodontal maintenance in San Jose, California. This can help keep your gums clean of bacteria and restore your oral health. We welcome you to contact us at 408-295-1100 to schedule your appointment with our periodontist.
