Your gums provide the perfect accent to your smile, but they also do much more than that. They help your teeth maintain their proper alignment and protect you from dangerous bacteria that can lead to serious issues for your general health. If you have noticed any of the indicators of gum disease, contact University Park Family Dentistry at 574-272-4441. Our team will schedule you for an appointment with our dentist, Dr. Jeffery Turner, for periodontal treatments in South Bend, Indiana.
