A condition called gingivitis (gum inflammation) usually precedes periodontist. This is caused by the plaque that builds up on the teeth and gums. If left untreated, the condition can advance to periodontist, resulting in the damage of the bones, gums, tissue and support. Teeth may decay and fall out as a result of gum disease.
The number of treatments we offer is dependent on the severity of the gum disease. The main goal is to control and eradicate the infection. We provide a number of non-surgical treatments, such as scale and polishing, root planning and stain removal. Your dentist will be able to determine which procedure is most suitable for your condition.
