Periodontal Care From Your Dentist in Fairfield

PERIODONTICS IN FAIRFIELD CT

Periodontal disease is an infection in the gums that generally begins as an inflammation of the gum tissue. Caused by harmful bacteria in plaque (a sticky film that forms on the teeth), at Vayner Family Dentistry in Fairfield, we know that if regular oral hygiene is not maintained, these bacteria can cause an infection that damages the supporting structures of teeth. When left untreated, the infection advances, and the gums pull away from the teeth, creating gaps known as periodontal pockets.
