Periodontics

Periodontal disease can be devastating to your oral health. iSmile offers treatment for gum disease and preventive care to help you manage the harmful bacteria in your mouth and keep your teeth and gums healthy and beautiful. Call today to schedule an appointment with our dentists and learn more about periodontic dental care, including:

  • Gum Disease Treatment
  • Preventing Periodontal Disease
  • Symptoms & Risk Factors

Periodontics focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease and other conditions that affect the gums and soft tissues of the mouth. Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is an infection caused by the bacteria in plaque. When plaque builds up on the teeth, the bacteria can irritate and inflame gum tissues. If this condition is not treated early (gingivitis), it can develop into periodontitis. Gingivitis is red, tender, bleeding, and swollen gums. Periodontitis also involves gum recession and can eventually lead to bone loss and tooth loss. Gingivitis can usually be controlled and even reversed with professional cleanings and improved at-home oral care if the condition is diagnosed and treated early. Periodontitis, on the other hand, generally requires more involved, frequent treatment. We are pleased to provide high-quality treatment for gum disease at our office to return your smile to good health.

In addition to focusing on the treatment of periodontal disease, periodontics includes the placement of dental implants. Dental implant placement requires specialized, advanced training for optimal results. To learn more about periodontics and how we can care for your smile, we welcome you to contact us today. Our dentist and team look forward to caring for you!

While many patients think of orthodontics as an effective way to improve the aesthetics of their smiles, orthodontic treatment can also be very beneficial to your oral health and function. Correctly aligned teeth are generally at a lower risk for dental problems, such as tooth decay and gum disease. Orthodontics can also make it easier for you to chew, eat and speak properly. To learn more about orthodontics and the treatment methods we provide at our office, we invite you to contact us today. Our dentist and team are dedicated to helping you achieve a straighter, healthier and more beautiful smile!
