Periodontic Services

The word periodontal means "around the tooth". Periodontal disease attacks the gums and the bone that support the teeth. Plaque is a sticky film of food debris, bacteria, and saliva, and if not removed will turn into calculus, also known as tartar. When plaque and calculus are not removed, they will begin to destroy your gums and bone. Periodontal disease is characterized by red, swollen, and bleeding gums. Contact us immediately if you are suffering.

Be Aware Now

Four out of five people have periodontal disease and don't know it. Most people are not aware because the disease is typically painless in its early stages. Not only is it the number one reason for tooth loss, but recent research suggests there may be a link between periodontal disease and other diseases such as stroke, bacterial pneumonia, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and increased risk during pregnancy.

Turning Your Health around

Researchers are currently determining if inflammation and bacteria associated with periodontal disease affects these systemic diseases and conditions. Smoking also dramatically increases the risk of periodontal disease.

This is why good oral hygiene, a balanced diet, and regular dental visits can help reduce your risk of developing periodontal disease, and lead to a better, overall quality of life.
