Periodontal Disease Prevention & Treatment

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

In its earliest stages, we can reverse periodontal disease by improving your hygiene routine and adding in an antimicrobial treatment. Once gum disease has progressed past a certain point, however, the disease is not reversible. We can still provide treatment that will stop the disease and prevent further deterioration of your gum and bone tissue.
