The Dangers of Undetected Gum DiseaseWe’ve all heard that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, but when it comes to gum disease, prevention may be worth even more. After all, wouldn’t you rather prevent a crisis than manage one? And believe it or not, gum disease is at crisis levels, even here in La Jolla.
It doesn’t make the nightly news, but more than 50 percent of people in the La Jolla area don’t visit a dentist regularly. Even worse, of that 50 percent of the population, 80 percent have some degree of gum or bone disease. Could you be among those statistics?
The answer is Dr. Gary Sigafoos, a periodontist, and the professional dental staff at LaJolla Periodontics. They know how important good oral health is, and they have the experience to help detect and, if necessary, treat gum disease. Seeing Dr. Sigafoos on a regular schedule is the best ounce of prevention around.
