Why Periodontics Matter
The health of your gums and the bone in your jaw is extremely important. Most Sydney locals don’t realise that there is a connection between their gums and their overall health. In fact, medical research suggests that your periodontal health may influence your risk for conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke and Alzheimer’s disease.
If you do suffer from gum disease, then you need treatment as soon as possible. The periodontics therapies Dr Chou carries out at Toothsome in Sydney may reduce your symptoms.
Dr. Chou’s periodontic therapies in Sydney are performed with a decisive yet gentle touch. She’s extremely skillful and knowledgeable with her craft and always does her utmost to provide the best treatment possible.
