Why Choose Us?
Deciding on who to trust with your oral health can be a big decision. An individual’s oral health is not solely limited to his or her mouth, but actually affects overall health as well. Most patients automatically think of going to their local dentist when dealing with mouth issues, but often their mouths need the specialized care of a periodontist. Unlike dentists, periodontists specialize in working with the mouth’s soft tissue (i.e., gums) and bone.

Gum Disease and You
Gum disease is incredibly prevalent among the US population; over 50% are infected with varying degrees of severity. It is particularly difficult for patients to know when they have gum disease because pain and other noticeable symptoms do not show up until the disease is in its advanced stages. Gum disease results from how the body responds to certain types of bacterial infections, which in turn affects a patient’s health.
Most people do not realize that the mouth plays a crucial role in our general health and can seriously affect how other diseases like diabetes, heart disease, and chronic kidney disease progress in our bodies. Women who are pregnant must be careful if they have gum disease because it increases their risk of giving birth prematurely and the baby having a low birth weight. Also, gum disease increases the risk of bone loss in post-menopausal women.
Periodontists specialize in diagnosing and treating gum disease. Regular periodontal visits play an important role in eliminating gum disease and ensuring that the disease does not reoccur. Periodontal scaling and root planning are two of the more common ways to treat gum disease in its earliest stages and involve removing plaque and tartar from the gum line. Visit our Gum Disease page to learn more about how we help our patients get rid of this common oral disease.
Gum recession is also incredibly common; it occurs in an astounding 90% of the American population by the time they hit 60-years-old. Also, 60% of adults under age 29 suffer from gum recession. If left untreated, the disease will result in tooth sensitivity, decay, long teeth, and, eventually, tooth loss.
Provided they catch the condition early, periodontists can stop gum recession with gum grafting, a procedure that restores the gum to a healthy, aesthetically pleasing level.
