Healthy gums not only support your teeth, but they maximize your chances for having a healthy body overall. Unchecked gum disease is associated with heart disease, diabetes, and other serious systemic problems.
Dr. Ryan Shepherd of Uptown Dental Associates has undergone extensive training in periodontal disease treatment. He is the first dentist in New Mexico to be certified in the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique for gum recession.
Even if you don’t have obvious symptoms of gum disease, it’s important to visit the dentist every six months for a cleaning and exam. If you live in the Albuquerque, NM area, call Uptown Dental Associates at 505-407-8781.
