Did you know that the primary cause of tooth loss in adults 35 and over is caused by periodontal (gum) disease, and that it may be preventable? Our doctors and staff will work together with you to evaluate your daily oral hygiene practices, and provide treatments that will benefit your oral and physical health. Now more than ever periodontal health is understood to be important for you and your family's over all health. Emerging evidence demonstrates links between periodontal disease and other health problems such as diabetes, respiratory disease, stroke, osteoporosis, and preterm, low birthweight babies.
While there is no cure for periodontitis, it is treatable; and, our practice offers treatments that are evidence-based and consistent with the recommendations of the American Academy of Periodontology and the American Dental Association for the treatment of all stages of periodontal disease including dental implant therapy, periodontal surgery, cosmetic enhancements and deep scaling.
