Healthy gums can help your smile look its best. But they do far more than that. They keep your teeth in their proper alignment and prevent cavities. And they also provide an important line of defense between your body and the bacteria in your mouth that can cause general health issues, including respiratory and cardiovascular problems. If you have concerns about your gums, call Weston Family Dental Center at 954-385-9240 for an appointment with our dentist. Dr. Pratik Patel can talk with you about our periodontal treatments in Weston, Florida.
