Periodontal Care

Periodontal disease is an infectious and inflammatory disease which destroys the periodontal tissues. These tissues consist of the gums and the bone that support the teeth. It is a gum and bone disease. Periodontal disease affects 3 out of 4 adults. It is caused by a growing colony of living bacteria called “plaque”.

"The greatest cause of adult tooth
loss is periodontal disease."


What Are The Signs of Periodontal Disease?

If you have early-stage gum disease you will experience virtually no symptoms.

In its later stages, symptoms of the disease include:

  • Red, swollen gums
  • Persistent bad breath
  • Bleeding during brushing or flossing
  • Loose teeth

Prevention and Treatment of Periodontal Disease

The best way to avoid gum disease is to have regular dental checkups and cleanings. At each visit with us, we will check the condition of your gums. We will also do a thorough scaling (removal) of the tartar that houses the bacteria that can infect the gums.

If we detect signs of gum disease, we can offer a number of treatments, depending on the progression of the infection. One of the treatment options is laser procedure to provide fast, minimally invasive treatment of gum disease.

If you are concerned about the health of your gums, contact us today to schedule a full dental examination.
