Periodontic Treatment

Periodontal diseases are infections around the gum and bone that support teeth. Periodontal disease begins when certain bacteria in plaque produce toxins and enzymes that irritate the gum and cause inflammation. The resulting inflammation which may be painless initially can damage the attachment of the gum and bone to the tooth structure.

Tooth loss is not the only potential problem posed by periodontal disease. Research suggests that there is a link between periodontal disease and other health concerns such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, stroke, bacterial pneumonia and increased risk during pregnancy.

Several warning signs can signal a problem, for example, gum that bleed easily; red, swollen, or tender gum; gum that have pulled away from the teeth; persistent bad breath; loose teeth or teeth with increasing gaps or a change in the way your teeth fit together when you bite. If you notice any of these symptoms, please visit us for a thorough dental and periodontal examination. We offer scaling and root planning with special polishing to remove plaque, tartar deposits on the tooth and root surfaces. This procedure hastens the healing and restores the gum tissue.
