PERIODONTAL (GUM) THERAPY
Did You Know? - An estimated 75% of Americans have some form of Periodontal Disease*
Common signs of Periodontal Disease are bleeding or swollen gums, persistent bad breath, receding gums or "loose" teeth that do not have a history of trauma.
Early detection helps minimize treatment and avoid emergencies. As part of your complete dental examination, we will measure the space between your teeth and gums. Combined with diagnostic dental xrays, this process will help reveal any abnormal "pockets" - an indication of areas of gum disease in need of treatment.
If periodontal disease is present, we may perform non-surgical gum therapy in our office. Our office is equipped with Waterlase® dental technology for efficient and comfortable treatment of periodontal disease.
