When plaque is allowed to remain and build up in the mouth, it can cause both tooth decay and gingivitis, the first stage of periodontal (gum) disease. If gingivitis in Fuquay Varina, North Carolina, is left untreated, then an advanced stage of gum disease, periodontitis, occurs. To treat these conditions, Dr. McConnell and Dr. Langworthy happily offer gum disease treatment at Langworthy Family Dentistry, which is a deep cleaning of your teeth and gums to restore their health.
