Stay Ahead of Gum Disease

Periodontal disease is infection of the gum tissue and bone that hold teeth in place. By detecting and treating gum disease in its earliest stages, we can help you avoid the chronic bacterial infections that can lead to tooth loss and other serious complications.

Periodontal disease will not go away by itself.

Preventing and treating the disease in the early stages are the best ways to keep your smile healthy. Gum disease often can be treated with special deep cleaning called “scaling and root planing”. Left untreated, periodontal surgery may be needed to save affected teeth.

To check whether you have Gum Disease and how severe it is, our periodontist will:

  • Review your medical history
  • Examine your month to look for plaque and calculus and check for easy bleeding.
  • Measure the pocket depth
  • Take dental X-rays

Symptoms of Gum Disease

Periodontal Treatment
  • Bleeding, red or swollen gums
  • Bad breath or a persistent bad taste in the mouth
  • Sensitive gums and teeth
  • Gum recession and loose teeth, which are symptoms of advanced gum disease
  • Abscesses, which can form in the deepening gum pockets

Will my treatment be covered by insurance?

Our insurance coordinator will check if periodontal treatment will be covered fully by your insurance. If your treatment is not fully covered by insurance, we offer several forms of financing for dental treatment plans. Keep in mind that having periodontal treatment now may be less expensive than replacing a tooth lost to disease.
