Gum disease tops the list of common oral health problems. More than that, it’s a problem that dramatically impacts overall health too. That’s why gum disease therapy is an essential service. With our proactive approach to gum disease, we hope to prevent serious changes to your smile. If left untreated, gum disease can result in gum tissue loss, tooth loss, and increased risk for heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, and pre-term birth.

During every regular exam and checkup, Dr. Sakina Khambaty will evaluate your gums for signs of inflammation. If we find anything, we begin working on a treatment plan immediately. Mild gum disease (known as gingivitis) can often be reversed with an improved home care routine and more frequent cleanings. Scaling and root planning help patients with the more developed condition known as periodontitis.
