What is Periodontal Disease
Periodontal disease, commonly called “gum disease”, “periodontitis” or “pyorrhea” is a chronic, destructive disease affecting the soft and hard tissue around the teeth – the gums, ligaments, and bone – that support our teeth.
It is believed that over half the population of our country has periodontal disease. A large percentage of these people are unaware that they have this disease, and of those people a large number will never seek treatment and may lose teeth needlessly.

Periodontal Treamtent and Implants
We provide a number of treatments for periodontal disease, in addition to placing implants. The goal of our periodontal office is to try to preserve your natural teeth. There are a number of treatment modalities the doctor utilizes to repair, rebuild and/or strengthen the gums and bone that support your teeth or to replace teeth that are lost.
These treamtents include:
Do you know how healthy your gums are?
Do you know the proper way to care for your teeth and gums?
Do you have periodontal disease?
Do you know the symptoms?
Did you know that there is rarely any pain associated with gum disease?
Did you know that 90% of adults have some form of periodontal disease?

Oral Health Information
What is Periodontology?
Periodontology is the study of the specialized system of hard and soft tissues that supports your teeth and maintains their position in the jaw. This apparatus, known as the periodontium, has some very important functions: it securely attaches the teeth to the jaws; it acts as a shock absorber during biting and chewing and therefore helps to prevent damage to the teeth from excessive forces; and it maintains the teeth in a stable position within the jaws so that that they work together efficiently and comfortably during chewing.
