Periodontics (Gum Treatment)
Healthy gums and supporting tissues are the foundations for healthy mouth & body. Gum bleeding during brushing and/or flossing is an indication of unhealthy gums with an infection. Research has shown that most adult patients have some form of gum disease ranging from simple gingivitis to advanced periodontitis. Recent studies have also shown a direct link between gum disease/infection to heart disease and diabetes. In our office, we value the importance of healthy gums and offer simple cleanings and roots scaling (deep cleanings). Also, we work with specialists in the area for any further needed gum therapy.
