Gum disease can be caused by lifestyle choices, hormonal changes and even genetics. However, in most cases, gum disease is the result of a buildup of plaque and tartar both above and below the gumline. If you are concerned about gum disease taking a toll on your smile, call Bond Family & Implant Dentistry at 303-772-8020 for an appointment with our dentists. A member of our team will schedule you for an appointment for scaling and root planing in Longmont, Colorado, with Dr. Ryan Bond and Dr. Taha Aziz.
