Even healthy teeth can be lost due to a lack of supporting structure such as the gums and bone. Did you know that 8 out of 10 times a tooth is lost it is because of periodontal disease?
The good news is that when your dentist diagnoses early or late stage periodontal disease, there are therapies that can often slow down and almost stop the progression of bone loss. The goal is to actively fight or eliminate the active infection in your gums to keep the bone and gums from melting away from the tooth root.
We can prevent new gum recession, and repair teeth which already have recession. Often times the healing time is minimized through our special techniques and results are predictable and esthetically pleasing.
