Having healthy gums is more important than you may realize. While they do accent the appearance of your smile, they also help keep your teeth in the proper alignment and lower your risk of cavities. But they also protect your body from oral bacteria that can lead to cardiovascular and respiratory disease and can create problems for people living with diabetes. Our dentists can see you for an appointment to discuss our periodontal treatments in Palm Desert, California. Call Palm Desert Center for Advanced Dentistry, Periodontics, Cosmetics & Implants at 760-340-1030 to plan your visit.
