Periodontal (gum) disease is something that affects more people than we might realize! Luckily with the right care it can be managed and treated. But if left untreated, gum disease can have lasting negative consequences on your oral health as well as your overall health. Advanced stages of periodontal degeneration are powerful enough to even destroy the jabones and gums entirely. Being the primary cause behind adult tooth loss, gum disease can in turn exacerbate and add to already existing conditions such as cardiovascular issues and diabetes.
Only a periodontist can provide the needed thorough and advanced periodontal treatment to manage complex and progressive cases of gum disease. You can take an indepth look into our periodontal services here.
Treatment options vary from scaling and root planing (deep prophylaxis) to surgical interventions. Whichever treatment is needed, our practice can assist you and provide a comfortable experience overall.
It is also a major threat to our overall well being as infection present in the gums can enter the bloodstream and cause severe health issues or negative effects on the immune system.
Gum disease is a major threat to oral health and calls for specialized treatment which varies case to case. By investing in a periodontist to seek treatment, you invest in your health.
