Non-Surgical Periodontics

Prevention and Treatment of Gum Disease

Non-surgical periodontal dentistry refers to the specialized care in treating periodontal (gum) disease without invasive surgery. Surprisingly, symptoms can be minimal or absent which is why regular routine checkups are advised. Gum disease can lead to more problems than just an unsightly smile. Toxic bacteria in plaque attack your mouth’s soft and sensitive tissue to form periodontal (gum) disease. When gum disease is left untreated, it may cause the loss of teeth and more serious health problems.

In early stages, periodontal disease is referred to as gingivitis. Routine daily flossing and brushing can help prevent periodontal (gum) disease. Early warning signs of gum disease include red, swollen, and bleeding gums.

We are proud to offer various gum disease treatments for any stage of gum disease. When we find periodontal disease its in early stages, we can help you reverse the damage. In later stages, your gums will pull away from your teeth and infected pockets will start to develop. If gum disease is detected in later stages, we are able to utilize many of our effective state-of-the-art procedures to help control it.  After receiving treatment in our office, it is crucial that you continue daily healthy hygiene habits. Our focus is to keep your smile as healthy as possible, keeping it free from infection and disease.
