Did you know?

Healthy gums are generally a light to medium shade of pink. They look and feel firm instead of soft or spongy, and they fit snugly against your teeth without pulling away from your roots. You should not experience pain or discomfort when brushing, flossing or eating cold foods.

To learn more about proper oral hygiene habits and how our team can keep your smile in good health, we welcome you to call or visit our office today.

If you excessively grind or bite down on your teeth at night, Dr. Gary Barker may recommend you wear a custom night guard.
