Periodontal Treatment

Gum disease is a serious concern that can have wide-ranging effects on the health of your mouth and body. It is caused by a group of bacteria that stick to the tooth under the gum line between the teeth. This film (plaque) is a biofilm with many layers containing different species of bacteria and their by-products. The bacteria live in an ecosystem supporting each other, actually communicating, and utilizing one another’s by-products. If the biofilm (plaque) is not disrupted regularly it becomes more organized and the body begins to make chemicals in response to it. These chemicals break down gum tissue and bone. Preventing gum disease involves disrupting the biofilm’s (plaque) organization on all surfaces of the teeth at the gum line.
