A healthy smile requires healthy gums. Your gums maintain your tooth alignment and help keep your teeth healthy. But your gums also protect you from oral bacteria that can cause serious issues for not just your mouth but your general well-being. If you have noticed the first signs of gum disease, call Pacific Northwest Dental at 360-995-0025 for an appointment with our dentist. Dr. Eric Xu can talk with you about gum disease treatment in Olympia, Washington.
