Periodontal (Gum) Care

Periodontal (gum) care: From routine ‘cleanings’ to significant gum disease our office will recommend the appropriate treatment and develop a plan to get your gums healthy and help you to keep them healthy! A beautiful smile is composed of healthy teeth and gums.  Note the healthy pink gums of our patients and how it compliments the naturally beautiful smile!


Periodontal disease is a bacterial infection and chronic inflammation that is the major cause (seventy percent) of tooth loss after the age of thirty-five. Bacteria can get under your gums eating away at the bone that supports your teeth. Teeth become loose and may be lost if untreated. Over ninety percent of us have some form of gum disease.

Some people are at greater risk. Genetics are a factor. Chances are that if mom or dad lost their teeth, had ‘bad teeth’, or periodontal disease, you are at greater risk. Tobacco users create more irritation and inability to fight gum infection. A dry mouth makes you more susceptible to periodontal disease and decay. Other risk factors include stress, clenching or grinding your teeth, ‘bad bites’, failing dental work,  a reduced immune system and some medical conditions such as diabetes.

Additionally, use of some medications such as anti-depressants, sinus – allergy, anti-seizure, hormones and certain heart medications can affect your oral health.

Contrary to how gum disease used to be treated, surgically, most gum disease can be treated today non-surgically. Following our treatment recommendations and with the help of medications, ultrasonic toothbrushes, irrigation devices and other aids, our patients can achieve and maintain a level of periodontal health that can last a lifetime!
