We focus on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease. Periodontics focuses on the inflammatory disease that destroys the gums and other supporting structures around the teeth.
Do you know the signs of gum disease?
- Red, swollen gums
- Chronic bad breath
- Bleeding gums when you brush or floss
- Receding gums
- Loose or shifting teeth
Professional cleanings and other therapies can help to improve your oral health, helping you stabilize blood sugar and achieve optimum overall health. People with uncontrolled diabetes are more likely to get advanced gum disease than those whose insulin levels are regulated.
We treat cases ranging from mild gingivitis to more severe periodontitis or periodontal disease, and offer a wide range of treatments. When needed, we provide scaling and root planing (deep cleanings; the cleaning of infected root surfaces), root surface debridement (the removal of damaged tissue), and regenerative procedures (the reversal of lost bone and tissue).
