What are the signs of gum disease?

Around 80% of Americans have some form of gum disease, however, so it’s important to get your gum examined regularly at Long Family Dental. Obvious signs of periodontal infection are bleeding, discoloration, swelling or tenderness, and gums pulling away from the teeth. Learn about our periodontal therapy, and request an appointment for your gum health check.

Should I get dental implants?

Missing teeth cause embarrassment and oral health problems. Patients with missing teeth are at a higher risk for gum disease and tooth loss. Dental implants mimic real tooth roots. Your jawbone fuses around the fixtures and keeps your jaw strong. Dental implants have a more than 96% success rate! Implants can be used to place single tooth restorations or implant-retained dentures. At Long Family Dental, we used the latest advances in dental technologies to place and restore your dental implant.
