Gum Pocket Therapy

Periodontal disease is loss of bone and gum support around the teeth caused by bacteria. The disease can cause bad breath, tooth shifting, bleeding gums, and even tooth loss. Sometimes, the severity of your condition will require specialty care. Your dentist may refer you to us. Whenever possible, it is our goal to strengthen your jawbone and gums without surgery. We provide for you the most conservative and up-to-date treatments to arrest the disease process and regenerate missing bone and gums. These treatments include:

  • Deep cleaning (“scaling and root planing”)
  • Local or systemic antibiotic therapy
  • Bone regeneration
  • Pocket elimination procedures
