What’s more, when it comes to combatting gum disease or ongoing periodontal maintenance, our specialized care is backed by state-of-the-art technology for the best results possible. When your gum disease extends past the scope of care that’s available in a general practice setting, seeing a periodontist provides you with additional resources and support to help protect and prolong the health of your natural smile. From scaling and root planing and periodontal maintenance to osseous surgery and LANAP® laser dentistry , we provide surgical and non-surgical comprehensive gum disease treatments in one centralized, comfortable location.
Periodontal disease (gum disease) is an aggressive gingival infection that causes gum detachment, bone loss, and tooth mobility. The disease not only results in tooth loss, it can also affect your overall level of wellness due to plaque biofilm spreading into your cardiovascular system and lodging elsewhere in the body. As a periodontist, Dr. Kazmer is the specialist to see when it comes to initial gum disease treatment or ongoing periodontal maintenance. We offer:
Removing calcified buildup and bacterial biofilm from deep below infected gum tissues is the first step in treating periodontitis. This is a non-invasive “deep cleaning” that works well for mild cases.
For more advanced cases of gum disease osseous surgery is an effective way to clear bacteria and encourage healthy reattachment of gum tissue. Dr. Kazmer is highly skilled in this level of treatment and keeps your comfort in mind throughout.
Bad breath and tooth loss are the most noticeable side-effects of gum disease, but they’re not the most dangerous ones. Unfortunately, periodontitis can significantly affect your overall health and increase your chance of medical conditions, such as stroke and heart attack.
