Many associate the term periodontal disease or commonly called "gum disease" with discomfort, pain and fear. This no longer has to be the case in a modern dental setting. Many instances of periodontal disease can be diagnosed and treated in their early stages before they require more extensive treatment. The general dentist and your hygienist are your first line of defense in stopping periodontal disease.
It has been proven in numerous scientific studies that chronic periodontal disease has been linked to other systemic health issues such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and even pregnancy complications.
We take great pride in helping our patients stop the spread of periodontal disease using the latest therapies in dentistry today. Making a thorough evaluation and treating accordingly has allowed many of our patients to achieve good periodontal health without the need for surgery. Allow us to give you your personalized evaluation and help in improving your oral health.
