Caring for the

Gums of All Patients

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is the loss of bone which holds the teeth in place due to long-term, chronic inflammation. It cannot be cured, but it can be managed and the damage limited, if caught early! Periodontal disease can cause recession, tooth mobility and even tooth loss!Our goal is to keep your teeth functional in your mouth for as long as possible. See below for the potential signs of gum disease, as well as how we can help slow the progress!
