What Causes Gum Disease?

In this video, Austin cosmetic and implant dentist Dr. Brandon Hall explains what situations typically result in the formation of gum disease.

What causes or contributes to gum disease? Gum disease is, at its root cause, is a bacterial infection of the gums. And that’s what it is.

If you’re not regularly going into the dentist and having your teeth cleaned and checked out and these things addressed and home care is a very big, important part of that, then you’ll be more prone to having gum disease. So don’t wait. Give us a call, come in if you have any question or you haven’t been to the dentist in a long time. We’d love to take care of you.
