Periodontics is the part of dentistry that takes care of the gums and bone that surround your teeth — ensuring a healthy mouth. Having a solid foundation of healthy gums and bone is very important.
If you’re concerned about gum disease, consider this: operiodontal disease – commonly referred to as gum disease – is a chronic bacterial infection that affects your gums and the bone supporting your teeth. It’s more common than you think, and you may not even realize you have it.
If periodontal disease isn’t treated correctly, it can leave loose teeth and eventually tooth loss. Successful treatment begins with early detection at our practice.
