Periodontal Health (Gum Health)
Including diagnosis of gum disease, treatment, and appropriate maintenance. Our focus, however, is on prevention whenever possible. We also screen for early detection of oral cancer.
If your gums feel sore, or if they look red and swollen, you may be at risk for periodontal disease (gum disease). Other signs are pain or sensitivity in your teeth, and persistent bad breath. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to tooth loss as well as various other serious health problems. We want to help protect your teeth, smile, and health by checking you for gum disease and guiding you into a course of improved oral health.
