Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is preventable and treatable as long as plaque bacteria build-up is treated promptly and effectively. The bacteria in plaque cause infection in your gums that leads to red, swollen and sensitive gums. This is the first stage of periodontal disease, also called gingivitis. Our dentists are able to control gingivitis and may even be able to reverse the condition. 3 out of 4 Americans have gingivitis and/or periodontal disease
Periodontitis is the later stage of gum disease. During the latter stages of gum disease, you may notice gum recession, bone loss, and tooth loss. While periodontitis is not curable, at Art Of Cosmetic Dentistry, we offer excellent services and treatments to keep the condition controlled and keep you comfortable. Our team offers these treatments as frequently as you require.
Periodontal treatment may also include dental implant placement. Dental implants will aid your smile in looking and feeling great and help restore function to your mouth.
