If plaque builds up around your teeth, it hardens into something called calculus or tartar, and it can begin to infect your gums, causing your gums to bleed and become inflamed. These are the early signs of gum disease. Dr. Dan R. Clagett and Dr. Lindsey Milby of Clagett Cosmetic and Family Dentistry care about your oral and overall health, and we want to help our patients avoid gum disease. However, if you begin to experience early signs of gum disease, our dentists may recommend that you visit our practice for gum disease treatment in Elizabethtown, Kentucky. This procedure involves our team cleaning your teeth and gums to remove hardened plaque and restore your oral health. Please feel free to contact us at 270-769-3306 with any questions, and to schedule your appointment today.
