Periodontal or gum disease is one of the primary causes of tooth loss in people over age 18; it’s estimated that 80% of adults suffer from some form of this disease. Fortunately, our periodontists are able to treat and often reverse the effects of this disease. The initial stages of the gum disease are known as gingivitis and are characterized by swollen gums that bleed easily. Left untreated, the infection from gum disease can progress to the point where it results in the loss of teeth and even endangers your overall health. The periodontists at Dental Specialty Centers bring many years of specialty education and experience to help address your periodontal disease. Utilizing the latest technologies and state-of-the-art techniques, our periodontists can help minimize the devastating effects of gum disease.
