Your gums help keep your teeth where they need to be, but they are also the best line of defense between your body and the harmful bacteria in your mouth. That bacteria can not only threaten your oral health but can contribute to cardiovascular and respiratory issues, so keeping your gums healthy is incredibly important. With that in mind, if you have noticed the signs of gum disease, you need to call 203-866-7164 to schedule an appointment with our dentists. Dr. Robert Emilio and associates and our team offer periodontal treatments in Norwalk, Connecticut, to keep your smile and your body healthy.
