If you suspect that you suffer from a periodontal issue, come in for an exam with our dentists. There are several different stages of gum disease; our dentists can identify your symptoms and recommend treatment based on the extent and spread of the issues.

During its early stages, gingivitis can be treated with changes in personal habits or by scheduling regular cleanings with our dentists. Advanced stages of the disease, such as periodontitis, may need special periodontal cleanings. Scaling and root planing treatments are an effective way to remove sources of bacteria below the gum line. Antibiotics can also be used to prevent the spread of the disease. However, if the tissue of the gums, teeth or bones have been damaged by periodontitis, you may need to restore them with a soft tissue graft, bone graft or other restoration procedure. Depending on the extent of your disease, our dentists may recommend any or all of these procedures and treatments.
