Periodontal disease (gum disease) is the inflammation and infection of the bony structure supporting your teeth. This results in bone loss and gum recession and often goes unnoticed by individuals. With our digital x-rays and thorough periodontal examination, we can easily detect, and slow the progression of bone loss and tooth mobility. Our team of licensed hygienists uses advanced ultrasonic cleaning instruments to comfortably remove the build up and bacteria which is causing your periodontal disease to progress. Most patients who have periodontal disease will need to be seen on a shortened recall system (every 3-4 months). We take restoring your gums and teeth to a healthy and pain free state seriously. If you are ready to make the leap to getting your mouth back into optimal shape, please give Dr. Shannon and Dr. Preston a call today! We would love to meet you!
A great way to prevent gum disease from taking root is to start pediatric dental care with children. Another way reduce the risk of periodontal disease is to have professional teeth cleanings every six months if possible.
