Have you noticed that your gums are swollen, red, or tender? Do your gums bleed easily, such as when you floss and brush your teeth? If so, you may suffer from periodontal disease. Periodontal disease, which is also known as gum disease, is a condition that affects the gum tissues and can cause serious problems for your entire smile. Gum disease is caused by bacteria in plaque and tartar; when plaque and tartar build up on the teeth, the bacteria inflame and irritate the gum tissues. If this condition is not treated, it can lead to a receding gum line, bone loss, and tooth loss. In addition, research has shown that untreated periodontal disease is connected to several health complications, including:

  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Pregnancy complications
  • Respiratory conditions

A Testimonial from one of our happy patients…

AMAZING, AWESOME, OUTSTANDING…none of these words begin to describe each and every one of the staff members at Warise Family Dentistry. I came to the practice in 2009 to get a second opinion. The dentist I had been seeing (for 40 years) was suggesting I have three (3) teeth extracted. During my visit it was brought to my attention that [the] dentist I had trusted for 40 years had not been cleaning my teeth properly. So I turned my trust over to Warise Family Dentistry and have never regretted that decision.  When I first came to them I was a basket case.  If you Googled “dental phobia” you would have found a picture of me. Not to mention panic attacks. I’m embarrassed to say when I first started having treatments I had to have my husband come with me.  I had LANAP procedure done ins 2009 and now go regularly (4 times a year) for periodontal cleanings.  I owe my healthy gums and teeth to Dr. Tim, Jacklyn, Patty, Jenny and last but certainly not least…Cathy Dennis, my hygienist. I owe a debt of gratitude to each of you mentioned along with everyone else at Warise Family Dentistry for the person I am today. I am no longer that scared-to-death person I once was of the dental chair, the panic attacks have disappeared and I owe it all to this wonderful team.  Thank you, thank you , thank you…y’all were and still are a God-send.
