Non-Surgical Periodontal Treatment
Periodontal disease effects, to one degree or another, the majority of adults in the United States. It may range from mild inflammation (gingivitis) to more serious forms of periodontal infection. It is a disease with many factors. The primary common factor is microbial – that is, bacteria and other microorganisms. Other factors such as body chemistry, systemic state of health, nutrition and lifestyle factors are also important. Periodontal disease has been shown to be linked as a strong risk factor for heart disease, diabetes and other systemic problems. That means that treating periodontal disease effectively is more important than ever.

The procedure is a holistic, non-surgical, regenerative treatment that involves removing bacterial deposits from the root surfaces and disinfecting the pockets so healing can occur.
