What Is Gum Disease

Periodontal (gum) disease is an ongoing infection of the gums that takes place in stages. Gingivitis is the first stage of gum disease, which can lead to full-blown periodontitis if left untreated. Gum disease can lead to gum recession, tooth loss, and more serious health issues. If you think that you may have gum disease, please get a consultation right away. The sooner you see a dentist, the easier it is to treat!

Treatments for Gum Disease

We offer gum disease treatment through a procedure called scaling and root planing, a deep cleaning process for patients with periodontal disease. We’ll remove the built-up plaque and tartar from the teeth and the gum line as well as re-contour the gums to promote reattachment.
