Gum Disease

Cary, NC Gingivitis & Periodontitis Treatment

At Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, our dentists utilize the latest technology, such as our revolutionary digital x-ray system, to detect and treat Cary, NC gum disease cases before it develops into a more serious issue.

What Causes Gum Disease?

Gum disease is usually broken into two categories: gingivitis, or gum inflammation; and periodontitis, a general term used to describe gum disease. Oftentimes gingivitis precedes periodontitis, but this is not always the case.

These varying degrees of gum disease are usually caused by poor dental habits, smoking, hormonal changes or certain illnesses — such as diabetes — that put one at a higher risk of developing infections. Luckily, Dr. Patrick Lawrence and Dr. Shanup Gundecha are here to help!
