Gum disease is usually caused by plaque, a sticky film of bacteria that constantly forms on teeth. If plaque is not removed with thorough daily brushing and cleaning between teeth, gums become irritated and inflamed. The irritated gum tissue can separate from the teeth and form spaces called pockets. Bacteria move into the pockets where they continue to promote irritation. Left untreated, the process can continue until the bone and other tooth-supporting tissues are destroyed. The early stage of periodontal disease is called gingivitis. It often results in gums that are red and swollen and may bleed easily.

Testimonials
"“We love our dentist! My family started coming to Wall Family Dentistry recently when our previous dentist retired. We are thrilled to have found such a great place. No long waits, easy to schedule appointments, friendly and well-educated staff, clean office, aware of insurance coverage issues, but most importantly excellent up-to-date dental care. We couldn’t be happier (that includes a 4 and 7 year old). Thank you Dr. Wall."-- Audrey
