We end periodontal disease...before other problems begin.

Four out of five people suffer from periodontal disease — which attacks the gums and bone surrounding teeth — but most don’t even realize it since its symptoms are subtle in the early stages. While periodontal disease is the number one reason for tooth loss, research has linked it to other health problems, including stroke, bacterial pneumonia, cardiovascular diseases and more. That’s why we take it so seriously, whether that means carefully checking for it, treating it, or providing you with regular maintenance.

The earlier you catch periodontal disease, the easier it is to treat. So come in and let us provide you with a thorough evaluation and preventative cleaning.
