It’s Important to Treat and Prevent Gum Disease.

Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, affects the majority of Americans.  Typically Gingivitis is the most common and if left untreated it can lead to the more advanced gum and bone disease called periodontitis.

Gum disease is caused by plaque build up due to poor oral hygiene. . Bacteria build-up causes your gums to become red, swell and bleed.

Most patients with gingivitis feel no discomfort, but without routine check-ups, it could result in tooth loss.

It is very important to schedule regular appointments with us so that we can monitor your dental health and provide preventative contemporary dental solutions.

Schedule an appointment with us immediately and take extra care of your teeth to avoid these diseases.

Gum Disease: FAQ

Gum disease (really bone disease) is the condition where the bone that holds the teeth in the jaw, is lost. What causes it? The vast majority of gum disease is caused by bacteria.
Yes!! Gum Disease is Preventable. Good home care, especially flossing, along with professional cleanings, can prevent almost all tooth loss from gum disease.
Tooth loss is not part of aging. It is almost always caused by neglect! There is almost no reason to ever lose your teeth, as long as you spend a few minutes a day doing some home care, as instructed by your Dental Hygienist.
In the early and moderate stages, it can be treated non-surgically, in your general dentist’s office, with a series of cleanings to remove the harmful deposits and instruction in proper home care. Advanced stages are treated by a gum specialist (Periodontist). Their treatment may include surgery to make the teeth more cleanable.

Dr. Blum, Dr. Dakwar, and staff are friendly, caring, and accommodating. The office is welcoming and conveniently located adjacent to 12 Corners. I’m happy to recommend them to family and friends.

I have been going to this dentist office for the past two years. The hygienists are great, and everyone in the office makes you feel comfortable and welcome. I have also had work done by Dr. Blum on a couple different occasions. He does a fantastic job and he makes sure that you are comfortable throughout.


Monica Anderson

The dental care provided me by Dr. Blum and his staff is one well grounded in the very best educational and professional standards available. The whole staff models a standard of excellence while being friendly and polite. Respect and genuine caring have been my experiences in a spotlessly clean, cheerful environment where my time is respected, as is theirs. Any urgent matter is given the utmost care and concern should the need arise outside office hours.


Heather Cook-smith

Friendly staff, gentle but thorough hygienist. Dr. Blum is a personable expert who treats his patients as if they're family.


Carl Kesselring

I have been going to Dr Blum's office for over 30 years. When he moved his office to the other side of the city I decided it was worth the trip to stay there. I don't think you can get better dental care anywhere else.
