Periodontal Care

The most beautiful smile won't endure unless the supporting periodontal (gum and bone) tissues are healthy. Gingival (gum) tissues that are pink and firm are a sign of oral health. We provide careful tooth by tooth evaluation of the underlying structures and foundation before any dental care is initiated. Unhealthy gingiva will not support even the most attractive teeth or bridgework.

Gum disease is usually caused by plaque, a sticky film of bacteria that constantly forms on teeth. If plaque is not removed with thorough daily brushing and flossing, gums become irritated and inflamed (gingivitis). The irritated gum tissue can separate from the teeth and form spaces called pockets. Bacteria move into the pockets where they continue to promote irritation. Left untreated, the process can continue until the bone and other tooth-supporting tissues are destroyed (periodontitis), resulting in the premature loss of teeth.

We carefully and regularly monitor the health of these tissues, recommending the appropriate level of treatment, including antibiotic rinses, improved home care or a spectrum of surgical treatments.

More specialized care is available, as we work closely with several excellent, talented and sensitive periodontists.
