Periodontal Therapy / Gum Disease Treatment

Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss and may affect up to 50% of our adult population. Regular professional oral health care and cleanings can help to prevent gum disease. Once gum disease is past its initial stage of gingivitis, it is irreversible. Fortunately, with gum disease treatment we can help you to prevent the disease from progressing.

Oral Hygiene Services 

Regular professional and at-home oral hygiene is crucial for optimal oral and overall health. Our hygienists will provide you with complete dental exam and cleaning. Over the counter dental products may promise “from the dentist” results, but they do not compare to professional cleaning and polishing. Halitosis (bad breath) and decay can occur when regular hygiene appointments are missed or skipped.
