Periodontal Care

Periodontitis means inflammation in the supporting structures around the tooth. Bacteria and other microorganisms stick to the surface of the tooth and in the pockets surrounding the tooth. As they multiply, the immune system reacts, leading to inflammation.

Untreated periodontitis will eventually result in tooth loss and may increase the risk of stroke, heart attack, and other health problems.

Periodontitis is a chronic or long-term inflammatory disease. Good oral hygiene practices can help manage or prevent it.

Complete care on your schedule.

The health of your gums is directly connected to your overall well-being, as they act as a barrier against harmful bacteria and viruses entering your bloodstream. Neglecting proper oral hygiene, such as daily brushing and flossing, can lead to gum inflammation, localized and generalized infections, and periodontal (gum) disease. This condition, if left untreated, can result in bone loss, loose teeth, and eventual tooth loss, along with potential medical problems like heart disease, diabetes, and autoimmune disorders.
