When it comes to our dental health, most patients focus on the appearance of their teeth. But did you know that gum health is just as important if no more so? The gums actually support and nourish the teeth. If they are damaged or compromised by gum disease, the health, and stability of your teeth are in danger. Dr. Jeffries and the dental care team at Herndon Family & Cosmetic Dentistry will monitor the health of your gums when you visit with us regularly. Routine dental care is a key factor in avoiding gum disease throughout your life.
