Periodontal Treatment/Oral Treatment
If untreated, periodontal disease can result in loosening of the teeth and loss of teeth
Periodontal disease or gum disease is a breakdown in the structures that support the teeth, namely the gingiva (gums) and bone. Periodontal disease is caused by a build-up of bacteria, plaque and tartar.
After periodontal treatments, it is often necessary for you to have your teeth checked and cleaned more frequently to prevent a relapse. Dr. Monson will discuss with you the optimal time between your appointments.
