Periodontal Care

Treating periodontal disease may improve your overall health!

Periodontal (gum) disease is an infection to gums or surrounding soft tissue caused by a buildup of bacteria. The best way to prevent periodontal disease is to practice good brushing, flossing, and nutrition every day, but when the infection is too deep more extensive measures are needed.

Infections begin in small crevices where the tooth meets the gum, and can appear as only minor swelling or bleeding. As the infection progresses however, it moves deeper below the gum line where it forms large pockets of bacteria in and around the roots of the tooth. If these are left untreated they will decay the bones of the tooth and jaw, which may require extractions. Bleeding gums indicate an infection in the mouth and should be a cause for concern. Gums that bleed allow for bacteria to enter the bloodstream and travel to other parts of your body where infection can set in.

We have been coming to Dr. Meyer for many years and really appreciate the great service we receive. I enjoy getting my teeth checked and cleaned with Dana. The whole staff is very professional and very friendly. They are also great with our son who has a disability.

Thanks to Dr. Meyer and his wonderful staff I can enjoy smiling again. I went to First Impression Dental when I noticed that my smile was looking awful in pictures. Not only did they straighten my teeth and give me a beautiful smile with veneers, but my mouth has never been healthier. I highly recommend them for all your dental needs.
