Good gums are necessary for a healthy smile and even a healthy body. Your gums help you maintain proper dental alignment and protect your tooth roots from decay. They also defend your body from oral bacteria that can lead to severe problems for your general well-being. If you suspect that you are dealing with gum disease, call Briar Pointe Dentistry at 248-347-0030 for an appointment with our dentists. Dr. Neil Blavin, Dr. Rikki Blavin and our team offer periodontal treatments in Novi, Michigan.
