Diagnosis & Treatment of Periodontal Disease

Contact Us

Overview

There are four types of periodontal disease according to their severity, the first and more mild of the four being gingivitis, all of which can stem from poor oral hygiene and bacteria in dental plaque. Symptoms may include swollen gums and bleeding gums or other tooth and gum discomfort. If not addressed early, this bacteria can spread and burrow, destroying gum and bone tissue and causing loose or lost teeth. It is important to ask your dentist or dental hygienist for a periodontal exam at your next appointment. If they detect periodontal disease, that’s where our periodontists come in. We have the experience and expertise to perform a thorough examination and perform the most appropriate procedure to treat periodontal disease, which can be a dental deep cleaning, LANAP laser gum disease treatment or other surgical methods.

64.7 million American adults, have mild, moderate or severe periodontitis.
