It’s Important to Treat and Prevent Gum Disease.

At Dr. Fred Blum & Associates,, we understand the importance of taking care of your overall oral health, including the health of your gums. 

As such, we’re dedicated to providing quality care for gum disease, also known as periodontal disease.

What is Gum Disease?

Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. It can be caused by poor oral hygiene, smoking, genetics, and even certain medical conditions. 

Over time, the infection can spread throughout the mouth, leading to tooth loss and other serious health issues.If not treated early, it can lead to pain, tooth loss, and other serious health issues. 

Fortunately, gum disease can usually be prevented or reversed with appropriate treatment.

Early Detection of Gum Disease

At our practice, we specialize in early detection and treatment of gum disease. 

We use advanced techniques and technologies to detect the signs of gum disease before it can progress to a more serious stage. That way, we can provide the appropriate treatment to help you maintain your oral health.

Early detection of gum disease can help preserve the health of your gums and teeth. 

We can help you identify the signs of gum disease, such as red, swollen, or bleeding gums, and provide the necessary treatments to prevent the disease from progressing. 

We also offer advice on proper oral hygiene practices, such as brushing and flossing, to help prevent gum disease from developing in the first place.

Don’t wait until your gum disease has progressed to a more serious stage. 

Early detection of gum disease is the best way to maintain your oral health and keep your teeth and gums healthy for years to come.

We provide comprehensive gum disease treatment and preventive care. Our experienced dentists use the latest techniques and technologies to detect signs of gum disease in its earliest stages. 

We also offer preventive care services, such as scaling and root planing, which help remove plaque and tartar buildup that can cause gum disease.

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.


Steve Visco

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.
