One important part of oral health that is often overlooked by the general public is the health of your gums and other soft tissues in the mouth. Much like the skin on the outside of your body, the gums provide protection for what lies below them, in addition to keeping the teeth stably in place. When neglected, problems with the gums can cause a domino effect of other, more serious health problems. Our dentist, Dr. Marla Wilson, can provide alternative periodontal care in Indianapolis, Indiana, to keep your gums and soft tissues in top shape. If you have any questions about periodontics, please call Premier Dental Care today at 317-787-6625 for more information.
