Periodontal Dentistry

Periodontal Dentistry is a field of dentistry that is preventative and restorative in nature, helping clients prevent periodontal disease and restoring your gums back to health when necessary. When someone has periodontal disease it means that an excessive amount of plaque and calculus (tartar) have accumulated around the teeth, causing deterioration to the area surrounding your teeth (which can include the jaw bone). Left untreated, periodontal disease will eventually begin to destroy the gums and bone.

Because the early stages of periodontal disease are usually painless, it can be difficult to detect. Some of the signs and symptoms of developing periodontal disease include:

  • Red, swollen or bleeding gums
  • Loose teeth
  • Increased spaces between teeth
  • Persistent bad breath
  • Pus around the gums and teeth
  • Receding gums around a tooth
  • Tenderness and discomfort

Aside from the risk of losing your permanent teeth, there are many health risks associated with periodontal disease. That is why we make an effort to prevent the disease, and to save you from the unnecessary costs of periodontal disease.

In our office, we will stop and prevent the onset of periodontal disease on three fronts through:

  • Diagnosis
  • Treatment
  • Maintenance

To avoid advancement in periodontal disease, patients should practice good oral hygiene, eat a balanced diet, and attend regularly scheduled dental appointments. Because untreated periodontal disease can be dangerous, if there is any pain or discomfort surrounding your teeth or gums, it is strongly recommended that you visit a dentist immediately.
