Your gums play several important roles. They help your smile look its best, protect the roots of your teeth from dental caries and help you maintain proper alignment. They also protect your body from oral bacteria that can contribute to cardiovascular and respiratory problems, and that has even been linked to Alzheimer’s disease. At Park Avenue Dentistry, we offer periodontal treatments in New Smyrna Beach, Florida, to help you enjoy good oral and general health.
