Gum and Teeth Care
You cannot build a secure house without a firm foundation and you can’t create a beautiful smile without a healthy periodontal foundation. That’s why we’re so thorough in evaluating, monitoring and treating at the very first sign of gum disease.
Periodontal simply means “the tissue around the teeth.” Plaque and tartar buildup and the associated bacteria are the main causes of gum disease.
Unfortunately, periodontal-related problems are often discovered after they have persisted for an extended period of time. Proper daily oral hygiene, and regular dental checkups will minimize the risk of gum disease. Gum disease ranges from mild (gingivitis) to moderate (periodontitis) to the severe (periodontitis). Treatments are available at every stage of gum disease and with the most severe cases, we refer to a Periodontist – they specialize in the treatment and surgery of periodontal disease.
