Gum Disease Prevention and Treatment
Periodontists specialize in preventing, diagnosing, and treating periodontal (gum) disease. Gum disease is a result of several factors, including smoking and inadequate brushing and flossing habits. Periodontal disease, left untreated, can result in the deterioration of the gums and bones that support teeth and cause pain and tooth loss.
While proper dental hygiene is the simplest way to prevent gum disease, there are some treatments that can help reduce the pain it causes and reverse further damage. From scaling and root planing to osseous surgery (pocket reduction), Michigan Gum Docs periodontic services can help your mouth to feel healthy again.
