It is known that the presence of certain bacteria in the mouth can lead to gingivitis (inflammation of the gums) and periodontitis (loss of bone). Our office offers various treatments to these conditions depending on the extent of the disease process. Early intervention is beneficial to limit the extent of bone loss. We firmly believe in conservative therapy whenever possible, however, our office can provide the full scope of periodontal surgical services when necessary. Patients who have suffered from periodontal infections in the past are a risk of recurrent infection. Therefore, it is necessary to follow up a successfully completed treatment with regular maintenance therapy.
