Preventing Periodontal (Gum) Disease

Periodontal Disease stockton caIt is unfortunate but true that, even in the 21st century, more than half the adult population still suffers from periodontal (gum) disease. In fact, even with the technological and medical advances that have been made over recent years, there are still many people whose overall dental health needs improvement. This is where practitioners from Deer Park Dental can help to provide the necessary corrective measures that many people need. We provide the following:

  • Specialized care for our patients with periodontal disease
  • A family friendly atmosphere in which you can discuss any dental issues you may have
  • We cater to the dental needs of all family members, whatever their age
  • Periodontal disease does not have to lead to gum and bone damage or tooth loss

What is Periodontal Disease?

Periodontal disease refers to the problems surrounding the gums after they have become infected and inflamed, due to the presence of bacteria around and below the gum line. We encourage people not to leave this matter untreated, as over time, the bacteria can cause gums to recede from the teeth. This can lead to bone damage, severe discomfort and even tooth loss.

  • We can help you prevent periodontal disease in the first place through regular checkups
  • Our caring and compassionate staff can help you with all of your dental conditions
