dentist coraopolis pa | gum disease coraoplisDid you know that about 50% of adults in the U.S. have some form of gum disease? Unfortunately, most people dismiss gum disease as “no big deal” and never seek treatment. However, ongoing studies have linked periodontal disease to systemic health conditions like diabetes, cardiovascular disease, respiratory disease, and even cancer. Gum disease is also the number one reason for missing teeth.

Dr. Rupert takes your periodontal health seriously and will work with you to prevent gum disease, or, if you already have this chronic disease, stop it from progressing.
