Periodontal Care

Periodontal Therapy

The health of your gingival (gum) tissue gives us insight into the health of the rest of your body. People actually lose more teeth to periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, than cavities. Our goal is for your teeth and dental restorations to last as long as possible. We evaluate the health of your mouth with a comprehensive exam. This includes periodontal probing, palpation of your masticatory muscles and oral cancer screening. From this information, we will tailor a plan to you.

Some patients require more than a normal tooth cleaning. This process is called scaling and root planing. Root surfaces are cleaned and smoothed with precision.
