Understanding Periodontal Disease | Obinna Nwankwo DDS



Welcome to Ultra Smiles, where Dr. Obinna Nwankwo DDS and our dedicated team prioritize your oral health and overall well-being. You may have encountered the term periodontal disease, also known as gum disease or gingivitis. It’s crucial to understand that periodontal disease isn’t just a minor inconvenience—it’s a serious condition characterized by inflammation and infection of the gums.

Periodontal disease manifests in various undesirable ways, including swollen and red gums, persistent bleeding, chronic bad breath, and more. If left untreated, it can progress to gum recession and ultimately result in tooth loss. Moreover, the implications of periodontal disease extend beyond your oral cavity, potentially increasing your risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, and stroke.

Prioritizing your gum health is essential for maintaining your overall health and well-being. Our team at Ultra Smiles is here to support you in achieving optimal gum health and preventing the progression of periodontal disease. Whether you’re seeking information or ready to schedule a visit, don’t hesitate to contact our office. Take proactive steps towards a healthier smile and a healthier you—schedule your appointment with Ultra Smiles today!
