We look for periodontal disease every time you visit us. Because of its prevalence and the lasting impact it can have, periodontal disease is something we encourage all patients to pay attention to. While it manifests itself early with tender gums, left untreated it can lead to loose teeth and tooth loss altogether.
Regardless of how attentive you’ve been to your oral health regimen, there are effective steps that we can take at all stages of periodontal disease.
If you have been diagnosed with periodontal disease, you need not despair! Regular deep cleanings and diligence at home often form the cornerstone of an effective defense against further damage.
