Periodontal disease is a bacterial infection that gets under the gums and into the bone around your teeth. This infectious material must be removed and the area given a chance to heal. There are two generally accepted treatments for this depending upon the severity of your infection. Each periodontal procedure is done with your comfort and safety in mind. We work closely with your general dentist to ensure you get the best possible result in accordance with your general dentist’s wishes. Please feel free to ask questions before, during or after any one of these procedures.
