Periodontal disease is a silent and painless disease until the advanced stages. As an infection, it destroys the attachment of the gum and the bone, which supports and holds your teeth in place. Your body must fight a constant infection, which wears down the immune system. Early detection of periodontal disease enables the dentist and hygienist to treat the periodontal disease with less radical treatment methods and cause healthier gums with reduced general health risks. Our hygienists are specialized in helping you maintain your periodontal health.
