If you have neglected your teeth and gums to the point where you suspect you may have periodontal disease (more commonly known as gum disease), you owe it to yourself and your family to schedule an evaluation at the Wake Forest, NC offices of Dr. Dawn Morehead, DDS.
Recent research has shown that periodontal disease doesn’t just cause damage to the teeth and gums, but may also contribute to:
- Heart Disease and Stroke
- Pregnancy Problems
- Respiratory Diseases
- And other potentially fatal issues
Dr. Morehead is a recognized periodontics expert who has helped thousands of patients enjoy more confident smiles and healthier teeth & gums. When she first opened her practice in 1985, periodontal disease was not as prevalent as it is today. Hectic lifestyles, lack of good brushing and flossing habits in both adults and children, and less-healthy diets all contribute to the rise in periodontal disease and the need for effective treatment.
