Periodontal Disease / Gum Disease

Often preceded by gingivitis (inflammation of the gums), periodontitis is an inflammatory condition of the tissues supporting the teeth. Treatment options change depending on the severity of the condition. They range from more frequent cleanings or an in office deep cleaning to a referral to a gum specialist called a periodontist.

Beyond the obvious discomfort and pain, periodontitis has links to other areas of the body outside of the mouth. Diabetes, heart, and respiratory disease all have been linked to gum disease in medical studies.
