Periodontal Therapy

People get periodontal or gum disease because bacteria becomes trapped below the gumline and eats away the attachment between the gum and tooth. Approximately 75% of all Americans have some form of periodontal disease. Unfortunately, only about 3% will get treatment before it’s too late. The rest will end up losing their natural teeth to periodontal disease.

Gum disease is a silent, painless and serious bacterial infection that usually goes unnoticed or ignored until severe gum and bone destruction occurs. By the time the pain of gum disease becomes unbearable, it is usually too late for effective treatment. Untreated gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss.
