What is Periodontal Disease?

Most adults will have some form of gum disease during their lifetimes. Gingivitis marks the first stage of gum disease. If allowed to progress, gingivitis can lead to more severe gum disease called periodontitis. Periodontitis affects the gums and the bone that support the teeth. Untreated periodontitis can lead to tooth loss and increases your risk of systemic issues including heart disease. Early diagnosis and treatment can keep you healthy and help save your teeth.

Laser therapy provides a no cut no sew alternative to traditional gum surgeries. Lasers can also aid in tissue regeneration. Learn more about laser therapy and the LANAP and LAPIP procedures.

Gum recession exposes the roots of teeth and can lead to sensitivity and decay. It also affects the aesthetics of your smile. Gum grafting is a procedure that regenerates lost gum tissue and in some cases covers exposed roots. Learn more about the surgical techniques used to treat recession.
