Gums: Periodontal Disease “Gum Disease”

Gum Disease Affects More Than Just Your Mouth

At Sharon Freeland Harris Dentistry, we know that your oral health is connected to your total health and well-being. Dr. Harris and our entire staff are committed to prevention, detection, and treatment of gum disease. Peridonal disease, commonly known as gum disease, has been linked to serious health problems, including heart complications. It puts your much more at risk than the health of your mouth.

We thoroughly check you for signs of abnormal gums during every hygiene visit — it’s that important. We also ask that you let us know if you have any signs or risk factors. Communication is the key to a successful healthcare partnership!

Featured Testimonial

Everyone was wonderful and instantly made me feel welcome and comfortable. Kelly was great, explaining everything she was doing and why. And Dr. Harris also made me feel confident that I, indeed, made the correct choice when choosing her practice. Linda, the receptionist, also was friendly and warm from the moment I stepped into the office. Everyone in the practice emphasizes the patient’s comfort and they go out of their way to reduce anxiety and relieve patient stress. I’m so glad that my husband and I found Dr. Harris and we both highly recommend her and her staff to anyone who is looking for a dental practice with lots of TLC.
