As plaque spreads to your tooth roots and causes bone loss, damage occurs to the supporting structures holding your teeth in place. A typical sign of periodontitis is your gums pulling away from your teeth over time as well as an increase in tarter build-up. If this continues untreated, an advanced stage of periodontitis develops which may result in shifting or loosening of your teeth.
We offer many treatments to prevent the formation of gum disease and to help treat these conditions. Among these, we offer the new Cavitron Touch ultrasonic scaling system to allow a more thorough cleaning and irrigation than was previously available by other systems (i.e. Vitajet). In addition, we offer treatment with the use of diode lasers to help clean the infected areas of the gum tissue. It is our sincere goal to not only maintain, but to improve your oral health.
