root_canals_2 | Dr. Jennifer Perkins, DDS

Gum disease is far, far more common than most people realize. As concerned as you may be about cavities (and you should be), you should be even more concerned about gum disease!

Untreated gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in the United States. Most people will experience a gum infection at least once during their lives.

The office of Jenny Perkins DDS would prefer to help you prevent periodontal problems, but we can help treat gum disease as well. One of the best things you can do for yourself is to learn the gum disease symptoms.

If you notice any of them (or you want to prevent them), call 256-801-0002 or contact us online to request an appointment at our Huntsville, AL office.
