Periodontal Disease

Millions of Americans have periodontal disease and don't even know it. Common symptoms are:

  • Bleeding gums when brushing or flossing
  • Receding gums (teeth appear longer)
  • Obvious plaque, tartar or calculus
  • Spaces developing between your teeth
  • Swollen, red or tender gums
  • Persistent bad breath
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Teeth are loose or mobile

PERIO protect

Unfortunately biofilm, a community of bacteria in the mouth reproduce very quickly. To maintain the health of periodontal pockets between cleaning visits, our office recommends Perio Protect, a custom fitted tray that delivers medication directly into the pockets of the gums that will then deliver and maintain medications that can kill the bacteria causing gum disease.
