Our Periodontal Treatments..

Periodontal disease is an infectious disease caused by the bacteria in your mouth and your body’s inflammatory response. Healthy gum tissue has 1-3 mm pockets with no bleeding or bone loss.

If bacteria are allowed to accumulate below the gum line for extended periods of time it hardens on to the roots of the structure and creates an inflammatory response that signals your body to destroy the bone and ligaments supporting your teeth.

Bacteria can also enter the bloodstream and cause systemic health conditions.
