Periodontitis: Gum Disease
Healthy gums and supporitng bone and tissue are very important for healthy teeth.
Any inflammation of your gums or your periodonal apparatus can affect the health and longevity of your teeth. To prevent this from happening, we take steps to stop the process and lengthen the success of your dentition.
Our periodontal treatment include:
- Standard Cleanings, for patients without periodontitis
- Scaling and Root Planing, or "deep cleanings" for patients who have periodontitis and a loss of supporting bone
- For patients that we feel may benefit from more extensive periodontal procedures such as gum surgery, we will refer to a specialist.
