Healthy gums do more than help your smile look its best. They also help protect the roots of your teeth from dental caries and help you maintain proper dental alignment. One of their most important jobs is to create a barrier between your body and oral bacteria that can lead to several serious problems for your general well-being. If you have noticed the early signs of gum disease, call Dental Charm at 773-248-8580. Our dentist, Dr. Patricia Crisostomo, can see you for an evaluation and discussion about periodontal treatments in Chicago, Illinois.
