Keeping Your Gums Healthy for a Lifetime

Protect Your Gums with Our Comprehensive Treatment Plan

Periodontal treatment focuses on the health of the gums and the supporting structures of your teeth. Dr. Bob Wilson and his team are dedicated to providing effective periodontal care to help you maintain a healthy mouth and a beautiful smile for years to come.

What is Periodontal Disease?

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a bacterial infection that affects the gums, bone, and ligaments supporting your teeth. If left untreated, it can lead to tooth loss and has been linked to systemic health issues, such as heart disease and diabetes. Early-stage gum disease, called gingivitis, can often be reversed with proper oral hygiene and professional dental cleanings, while advanced-stage periodontitis may require more intensive treatment.

Periodontal Treatment Options

Dr. Wilson offers a range of periodontal treatments tailored to your specific needs. For mild to moderate cases, non-surgical treatments such as scaling and root planing (a deep cleaning procedure) can effectively remove plaque and tartar buildup, allowing the gums to heal. In more severe cases, surgical options like gum grafting or bone regeneration may be necessary to restore the health of your gums and preserve your teeth.

Preventing Periodontal Disease

The best way to prevent periodontal disease is through consistent oral hygiene and regular dental checkups. Dr. Wilson recommends brushing and flossing daily, along with visiting our office every six months for professional cleanings and exams. During these visits, we will monitor your gum health and provide any necessary preventive treatments to help you maintain a healthy smile for a lifetime.
