Your gums are much more important than you may realize, not just to your smile, but to your body. Healthy gums make your smile more attractive and help you maintain proper dental alignment. But beyond that, they also protect you from oral bacteria that create multiple issues for your general health. If you have noticed the signs of gum disease, contact Graylyn Dental at 302-475-5555. Our dentists, Dr. Joseph Kelly, Dr. Caitlin Murphy or Dr. Hayley Willer, can talk with you about periodontal treatments in Wilmington, Delaware.
