Periodontal Diseases

As dentists, we treat the whole person – not just your teeth. After all, dentistry touches almost every important system in your body, including the endocrine and cardiovascular systems. Therefore, dentistry is central to maintaining your overall health. This is why we have such a strong focus on periodontal care. We are here to help you avoid developing gum diseases, because the condition not only affects your teeth, but your heart health as well. To help you maintain healthy gums, we do periodontal screenings, and use state-of-the-art approaches to treat gum disease.

Types of Periodontal Diseases

Periodontal diseases affect people of all ages, from children to seniors. In fact, there are several types of periodontal disease that may develop over time.

Gingivitis

Gingivitis is the mildest form of periodontal diseases. Patients with gingivitis may notice that their gums have become red and swollen, which has caused their gums to bleed easily. Those with gingivitis will experience little to no discomfort caused by the condition. Fortunately, gingivitis can be reversed with treatment and good oral care.

Chronic Periodontitis

Patients with chronic periodontitis will experience swelling and redness in the tissues surrounding their teeth. Additionally, those with this condition will experience loss of tissues and bone that can become more severe as time goes on. In fact, chronic periodontitis is the most common form of periodontal disease amongst adults, however, it can develop at any age. The condition slowly gets worse when left untreated, but some patients may experience periods of rapid progression.

Aggressive Periodontitis

Those with aggressive periodontitis will experience rapid loss of tissue and bone. This condition is highly destructive and often develops in patients who are otherwise healthy.

Periodontitis as a Manifestation of Systemic Diseases

Patients with certain blood diseases or genetic disorders are prone to developing and showing signs of periodontitis disease.

Necrotizing Periodontal Diseases

Necrotizing periodontal diseases often causes pain, bleeding and a foul odor caused by the death of the tissues surrounding the tooth.

DERMAL Fillers

The most advanced clear aligner system in the world. Take the first step toward getting the radiant smile you deserve with Invisalign® clear aligners.

Invisalign® Braces

Invisalign® treatment includes a series of virtually invisible clear, removable aligners that gradually move your teeth toward your dream smile. The clear aligners are comfortable and easy to manage. Every four to six weeks your dentist will assess your progression and give you a new aligner. On average this treatment takes a year.

How Invisalign® works:

  1. Every two weeks you will start wearing a new set of custom-made aligners. Each set of aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on your dentist’s plans.
  2. You will repeat this step until you achieve your desired results. There are no brackets or wires to worry about. Most people won’t even know you’re wearing aligners!
