Periodontal Therapy

Lawrenceville Family Dental Care offers periodontal therapy for those suffering from periodontal disease. Periodontitis is a very serious condition where the gums suffer severe infection. If periodontal disease is not treated with general dental care, it will eventually cause tooth loss and the infection can spread into the blood stream and cause even further health concerns. Periodontal disease begins in the simplest form of gingivitis; when gingivitis does not receive early intervention it will progress and will require the intervention of periodontal therapy.

Your gums and your jawbone hold your teeth securely in place. If they receive serious damage from periodontal disease the integrity of your teeth can be permanently damaged. Lawrenceville Family Dental Care offers effective therapy for periodontal disease to restore the health of our mouth and to prevent other irreversible health issues. If you have any signs of gum disease – red, tender, swollen, or bleeding gums – it is essential that you seek treatment as early as possible.
