Understanding Periodontal Disease: The Silent Smile Saboteur

Periodontal disease, commonly known as gum disease, is an inflammatory condition affecting the soft tissue areas  surrounding the teeth. If left unchecked, it can lead to tooth loss and has been linked to other health complications. Recognizing the signs and seeking prompt treatment is crucial for maintaining both oral and overall health.

The Cost of Neglect: Investing in Your Gum Health

The cost of periodontal treatment can vary widely depending on the severity of the condition and the type of procedure required. In Miami, patients might expect to invest anywhere from a few hundred to several thousand dollars in their gum health. At Blu Dental, we believe that quality care should be accessible to all, which is why we offer low in-house financing rates and accept all major insurance providers.
