Gum (Periodontal) Disease

The first stage in gum disease is called gingivitis. This is a reversible situation. However, if ignored, gingivitis will most likely lead to periodontitis. This is a very serious and destructive gum disease. Since it is possible to have gum disease but not realize it, it is critical that everyone have regular dental check ups.

Treatment methods will vary depending on the type of gum disease and the stage of damage. Brushing at least twice per day, flossing between teeth, eating a balanced diet, and scheduling regular dental check ups will get you well on your way to avoiding periodontal disease.

If you suspect that you, or a family member, may be experiencing gum problems, we will be happy to accept you or them as a new patient. Our goal is good dental health for everyone. Just call us to schedule a convenient time for an appointment for an examination and consultation.
