Gum disease can have a number of different causes. The biggest reason for gum disease is the buildup of plaque and tartar on your teeth above and below the gumline. If you are concerned about gum disease, call Village Dental at 352-633-4145. Our dentists can provide scaling and root planing in The Villages, Florida, to keep your smile clean and fight gum disease. We look forward to serving you at one of our three golf cart-accessible offices!
