Gingivitis - know the signs
There are several stages of periodontal (gum) disease, beginning with gingivitis. It is typically painless, and the symptoms are mild, leading many people to believe it is not a serious threat to oral health. However, untreated gingivitis can lead to periodontitis, which damages bone and gum tissue, leading to tooth loss.

You could have gingivitis and not even know it. Call Dr. Leo Arellano right away, if you have any of these symptoms:

. Gums that bleed when you brush your teeth
. Discoloration, uneven color, or other changes in
  the appearance of your gums
. Receding gumline
. Swollen or soft gum tissue
. Occasional tenderness in your gums
. Chronic bad breath

The number one cause of gingivitis is neglected oral health - poor hygiene, and skipping dental appointments. The three most important things you can do to prevent gingivitis are brush after meals, floss daily, and visit Dr. Arellano for a cleaning and check-up. Read more

What's new at our practice?
Oral Aerosol Vacuum
Many of you have noticed our new piece of equipment that is specifically designed for use in dental treatment rooms. When used in dental procedures where small dust particles, aerosols, or vapors occur, it will help keep you free of splatter, debris, and reduce any odors that you may experience including eliminating the possible inhaling of mercury vapors during the removal of old silver amalgam fillings.

What are the Benefits of Dental Implants?
Missing teeth can be unsightly. Missing teeth may be in the front of the mouth, which can cause embarrassment, or they can be in the back of the mouth, which can make it difficult to chew food properly. Dental implants are a popular option for individuals missing teeth. Read more
