Gum Surgery

Because the early stages of periodontal diseases are usually painless, it can be difficult to detect. Some of the signs and symptoms of developing periodontal disease include the following:

  • Bleeding gums
  • Loose teeth
  • Increased spaces between teeth
  • Persistent bad breath
  • Pus around the gums and teeth
  • Receding gums around a tooth
  • Red and inflamed gums
  • Tenderness and discomfort

Aside from the risk of losing your permanent teeth, there are many health risks that are associated with periodontal disease. Untreated periodontal disease is dangerous. That is why we make an effort to prevent the disease and to save you from unnecessary costs of periodontal disease.

When periodontal disease has advanced to certain levels, periodontal surgery may become necessary. The different surgery treatments may vary, due to the individual conditions that our patients may be in. Whatever your situation may be, we are ready and prepared to take care of you. Please give us a call if you have any questions, or to schedule an appointment.
