Periodontal/Gum Therapy

Periodontal Disease

One of the most common oral health issues faced by Americans today is the prevalence of gum disease, gingivitis, and periodontitis, specifically. If left untreated, these issues can become much worse and prove to problematic later in life as bacteria slowly compromises the structural integrity of the teeth and gums.

This means that the gums and teeth can loosen, teeth can eventually fall out, and excessive bleeding can occur when brushing, and if these symptoms occur, you should immediately consult your dentist.

Gum Therapy

While periodontal disease is serious and can have damaging effects on your oral health, it an absolutely be treated and even reversed. Therapeutic treatments like root scaling and planning, regular cleanings, and laser therapy can kill built up bacteria and allow the gums a chance to heal themselves, improving your gum health over time.

Gum Therapy treatments are designed to improve your gum health and strengthen your teeth by removing a build up of bacteria. If you have not been to a dentist regularly in some time, these bacteria may have been building up and should be removed professionally.
