Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a serious condition that if left unchecked can result in the loss of permanent teeth. The best method of treatment is preventative treatments, which we are proud to offer you.

Dr. Henry Danziger and Dr. Matthew Kerr do their best to prevent, diagnose and treat periodontal disease. Our method of treatment includes diagnosing the problem before it gets out of hand so that treatment can begin to prevent further damage. Sadly, this disease usually occurs from neglect and lack of knowledge of how properly to care for your teeth. When excessive bacteria is left to grow in your mouth it can reach the point where the tissue surrounding your teeth shrivels away, leaving your teeth to fend for themselves. Then, bacteria in plaque builds up causing the gums to become inflamed and easy to bleed while you brush your teeth. Once the disease progresses, the inner layer of the gums and bone pull away from the teeth and form pockets. The pockets then collect debris and infection, which grows larger and larger every minute. Eventually, toxins and poisons are released which begin to break down the bone and connective tissue that hold your teeth in their place. The more this happens, the more of a chance your teeth have of falling out.

This is a disease we wish to catch at the early stages.
