Periodontal (Gum) Care
Did you know that according to the American Academy of Periodontology, gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss in adults over age 35? The disease ranges from the early stage of gingivitis to the various forms of periodontitis. Its prevalence increases with age because teeth wear down and become more sensitive as time passes, gums naturally recede, and medications can affect oral health.
If your gums feel tender or sore, or if they look red and swollen, you may have gum disease. Here are other warning signs:
- Bleeding gums
- Receding gums
- Pain or sensitivity in your teeth
- Loose teeth caused by weakening gum fibers or bone loss
- Persistent bad breath
If left untreated, gum disease can lead to tooth loss as well as various serious health problems.
Treatment for Gum Disease
If you have any degree of gum disease, we can help. Gum disease used to require surgery more often than not. While surgery is still an option and sometimes needed, many cases are now treated with less invasive techniques first, such as deep dental cleanings, local antibiotics (Arestin®), and special mouth rinses. We also have PerioLase®, a soft tissue dental laser that can repair and in some cases even reverse the damage caused by gum disease through laser gum therapy.

Oral Cancer Screening
The shocking truth is that one American dies of oral cancer approximately every hour of every day. While tobacco and alcohol use are the primary lifestyle risk factors for oral cancer, surprisingly 27% of oral cancer victims do not use tobacco or alcohol, or have any other lifestyle risk factors. That’s 1 in 4 people who develop oral cancer!
There is some good news though. When caught soon enough, oral cancer is actually curable in 80 to 90% of cases. With such a high success rate after early detection, we strongly recommend our patients to get screened for oral cancer. We use ViziLite® for these screenings, which is special light technology that has proven successful in identifying soft tissue abnormalities that can turn into oral cancer.
A screening only takes 5 minutes and could save your life!Plan an Appointment
