Periodontal disease refers to an infection of the supportive tissues in the mouth that are usually the result of a buildup in toxic bacteria found in plaque. Periodontal disease is commonly known as gum disease or gingivitis. Many people have some degree of gum disease. If left untreated, this gum disease can cause many problems such as break down of the soft tissue in the mouth and jaw, tooth loss and other oral health issues. Periodontal therapy includes the gentle removal of plaque and bacteria from beneath the gum line. If needed more advanced treatments are available to restore and keep your gums in good health. Diseases like diabetes and heart-related illnesses have been linked to gum disease. Make sure to let our dental team know if you have either.

After our dentists have removed any damage or disease, we will fill and seal your teeth. in the past fillings were made of dark silver-amalgam. At our dentist office we use tooth colored fillings. These are made of a special resin that will be shaded and sculpted to match your tooth’s natural shape and color. This will also make it harder for future decay to develop due to leakage. Most people won’t even notice that you have a filling. Ask our dental office about tooth-colored fillings.
Do you have jaw pain, headaches, or neck and shoulder pain? These can be a sign that you’re grinding or clenching your teeth while you sleep. Using a customized nightguard mouthpiece will hold your teeth in a comfortable position and protect your teeth from clenching and grinding. Our doctors will look at your jaw and teeth to determine if a nightguard is the right therapy for you.
