Periodontal disease is the major cause of tooth loss in adults. Mainly caused by plaque, it is usually painless. Regular dental visits are essential to timely diagnosis and treatment. Warning signs of periodontal disease include red, swollen and bleeding gums, persistent bad breath, loose and separating teeth, and changes in the way your teeth meet when you bite.
We are committed to maintaining the health and appearance of your smile. Our philosophy is to prevent disease before it appears. We encourage our patients to maintain a three month recare schedule in order to preserve the health of the attachment to the teeth. Non-surgical treatment of periodontal disease (gum disease) is attended to right in our office.
