Healthy teeth need healthy gums for a firm foundation. Not only do your gums support your teeth, but they are also important in protecting your mouth and the rest of your body from bacteria and the infections they can cause. Unhealthy gums can lead to tooth and bone loss, and problems for your cardiovascular and respiratory systems. Dr. Shuyuan Julian Yang takes periodontal, or gum health very seriously and is dedicated to preventing gingivitis and periodontitis so that you can enjoy a healthy mouth. If you live in the Parsippany, New Jersey area and would like to learn more about healthy gums, or would like to schedule an appointment at our office, call 973-263-3006 today.
