Periodontal Dentistry: Protecting Your Gums, Enhancing Your Oral Health

Periodontal dentistry plays a crucial role in maintaining not just your oral health, but your overall well-being. Specializing in the care of gums and the structures supporting teeth, our periodontal services focus on prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal (gum) disease. We are committed to providing comprehensive care to protect your smile from the foundations up.

Understanding Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease, commonly known as gum disease, is an infection of the tissues that hold your teeth in place. It’s typically caused by poor brushing and flossing habits that allow plaque—a sticky film of bacteria—to build up on the teeth and harden. In advanced stages, periodontal disease can lead to sore, bleeding gums, painful chewing problems, and even tooth loss.

Our Periodontal Services

Our clinic offers a range of services to address periodontal health:

  • Routine Examinations: Regular check-ups are vital for early detection and management of gum disease.
  • Scaling and Root Planing: This deep-cleaning procedure removes plaque and tartar from below the gum line, helping to treat and prevent periodontal disease.
  • Periodontal Maintenance: After treatment, we provide ongoing care and monitoring to maintain your oral health and prevent recurrence.
  • Gum Graft Surgery: To treat gum recession and cover exposed roots, we offer gum grafting procedures.
  • Regenerative Procedures: These procedures aim to regenerate lost bone and tissue supporting your teeth, often reversing some of the damage caused by periodontal disease.

Our Approach

We use the latest technology and techniques in periodontal care, ensuring you receive the most effective treatment with minimal discomfort. Our experienced team is dedicated to educating patients about good oral hygiene practices and the importance of regular dental visits to prevent periodontal disease.
