Periodontal (gum) disease is an infection of the gums and the bone that surrounds the teeth. The condition is painless and most people won't even know that they have it. This serious condition is the leading cause of adult tooth loss. The earlier it is diagnosed, the greater your treatment options.
Periodontal Charting and Diagnostic Services
To identify periodontal disease, we perform a comprehensive examination including periodontal charting and x-rays. If we detect periodontal disease, we will talk with you about treatment options and proper home care to minimize bone loss and restore the health of your gums.
If periodontal disease is already established, we have a number of very effective in-office gum therapy treatments available. Treatments such as deep scaling, root planing, bone regeneration, and grafts are effective in minimizing bone loss and restoring the health of your gums. As with any other disease, prompt diagnosis of periodontal disease and effective home care is the key to restoring and maintaining oral health.
