Periodontal Services

TREATMENT FOR GUMS
The bone that supports the teeth is only as good as the teeth themselves. It makes no sense to devote resources to the treatment of dental issues if you ignore the foundation upon which those teeth are built. You wouldn’t build a high-end home on a shaky foundation, right? Recognizing periodontal disease, often known as gum disease, and taking proactive measures to treat and prevent the problem is a difficult but necessary element of comprehensive dentistry.

PERIODONTAL SERVICES WE OFFER INCLUDE:

  • Maintenance of Periodontal Health
    Scaling and Root Planning
  • Gum Grafting
  • Crown Lengthening

Have you noticed any swelling, redness, or tenderness in your gums? Do your gums bleed readily when flossing or brushing your teeth? If this is the case, you may have periodontal disease. Periodontal disease, often known as gum disease, is a condition that damages the gum tissues and can lead to major concerns with your smile. Gum disease is caused by bacteria in plaque and tartar, which inflame and irritate the gum tissues when plaque and tartar build up on the teeth. If left untreated, this condition can result in a receding gum line, bone loss, and tooth loss. Furthermore, research has linked untreated periodontal disease to a number of health problems, including:

  • Coronary artery disease
  • Stroke
  • Diabetes
  • Blood pressure that is too high
  • Complications of pregnancy
  • Respiratory problems

If you have gum disease, our dentists and dental experts will do everything possible to restore your smile’s health. Scaling and root planning are just two of the periodontal treatments we provide (deep cleaning treatments). If you suspect you have gum disease, please contact us as soon as possible to book an appointment with one of our dentists. We are committed to assisting you in maintaining a healthy smile.
