Periodontics


Gum disease is caused by plaque or biofilm, a sticky film of bacteria that constantly forms on teeth. If plaque is not removed with thorough daily brushing and cleaning between teeth, gums become irritated and inflamed. The irritated gum tissue can separate from the teeth and form spaces called pockets. Bacteria move into the pockets where they continue to promote irritation. Left untreated, the process can continue until the bone and other tooth-supporting tissues are destroyed and teeth can be lost. The early stage of periodontal disease is called gingivitis. It often results in gums that are red and swollen that may bleed easily. We utilize a variety of scaling techniques, medicated gels and prescription mouth rinses to help treat any periodontal areas as necessary. Ultrasonic instruments are sometimes used to make the procedure more comfortable and effective as well. Our hygiene team is devoted to educating you on all aspects of periodontal disease.
