You’ve probably been hearing a lot about periodontal disease in the news. Medical science is making new discoveries routinely that link periodontal problems with many health conditions. It’s been found that gum disease can cause heart problems and pre-term labor in pregnant women.
Early periodontal disease does not cause pain and can go unnoticed. However, early detection and treatment are extremely important. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults.
Periodontal disease occurs when plaque builds up and irritates the gums, leading to inflammation and infection. This earliest stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. If left untreated, it can progress to the bone, causing periodontitis.
In the later stages, the bone and soft tissues that support the teeth are destroyed; the teeth become loose and fall out.
For these reasons, it’s important to schedule regular dental visits, and to brush and floss between your teeth daily. We strive to help you keep your teeth and gums healthy for a lifetime with the following preventive services:
• Dental Cleanings
• Periodontal Care
• Dental Sealants
• Patient Education
• Athletic Mouthguards
• Breath Treatment/Advice
