Dr. Nammy talks about your gums, and why they are so important to the health of your teeth.
The gum from the foundation to your teeth, it’s really important you address them first, because would you ever build a 60 story building if you didn’t have proper soil? You would never do that or build a house if you didn’t have proper foundation. What we always do is start with the foundation of the teeth, which is always the gums, and then we move forward.
