Three out of four adults have some level of periodontal disease, commonly called gum disease. The often painless condition is caused by bacteria, plaque, and debris not removed by proper brushing and flossing. Without treatment, periodontal disease can cause permanent tooth loss. Your regular checkups allow Dr. Hauge and our team to assess your whole mouth and catch problems trouble before they escalate.
If we detect gum disease, we will recommend periodontal treatment. We utilize conservative periodontal treatment, such as localized antibiotic therapy, whenever possible. Non-surgical periodontal treatments are less invasive and less time consuming than advanced surgical procedures, which we use only as needed.
Dr. Hauge and our team take gum disease seriously, so we offer the following periodontal treatments to reverse the effects and protect your teeth:
- Charting and Diagnostic Services
- Localized Antibiotic Therapy
- Scaling and Root Planing
- Surgical Treatment
Contact our Centuria dental office to schedule an exam so that we can evaluate your teeth and gums. Left untreated, simple gingivitis could escalate into periodontitis, tooth loss, and a host of overall health problems!
