Our team at Duvall Dental Center wants every single patient of ours to achieve their best oral health. That’s why we’re devoting today’s blog to Gum Disease Awareness Month and arming you with the tools you need to keep your smile healthy.

Protect The Smile You Love From Gum Disease!

You love your smile and want to preserve it for as long as possible. So here are some facts about gum disease that will help you do that!


The number one cause of adult tooth loss is gum disease, which is just one of the reasons you should do all you can to prevent it. Although we provide advanced dental implant solutions in Duvall, WA that closely mimic the function and appearance of natural teeth, nothing works as well as the real thing.


In its earliest stage, known as gingivitis, gum disease is reversible. But you have to pay attention to your teeth and gums each day when you brush and floss, and keep up with routine dental exams, to be able to spot gum disease at this stage.

If it’s not caught during gingivitis, gum disease can advance to periodontitis, which can’t be cured. We can help you manage it, of course, so that you don’t lose your teeth or suffer the other health consequences associated with gum disease.

But it will require dedication every single day with good oral hygiene and a healthy lifestyle.


Science has shown a staggering number of systemic health problems that are linked to the spread of gum disease infection.

It may develop inside your mouth, but there are plenty of easy pathways to your bloodstream for gum disease to access, which would put you at a higher risk for depression, diabetes, heart disease, and stroke, just to name a few.

If the thought of losing your teeth doesn’t motivate you to fight gum disease, then maybe knowing you could lose your life will inspire you to remain vigilant when it comes to guarding your smile from this infection!


It may surprise you how far dentistry has come in recent years. Treating dental problems, including gum disease, is more comfortable than it has ever been thanks to advanced tools and techniques.

Our non-surgical gum disease treatment at Duvall Dental Center gets under the gumline to deeply clean the bacteria from your mouth and protect your tooth roots from further buildup. It’s gentle, but highly effective in stopping the progression of gum disease and saving the healthy smile you love!
