Periodontal Treatment

Periodontics is the important branch of dentistry that studies the soft tissue and structures supporting the teeth, including the gums and bones in the mouth. A periodontist is a dentist specially trained to treat these soft tissues. Periodontal disease usually results from a bacterial infection of the gums, and plaque buildup at and below the gum line is the primary cause. Periodontal disease, also called gum disease, is the leading cause of tooth loss for American adults. Left untreated, the condition can lead to tooth and bone loss, cause changes in your facial structure, and impact your overall health.

As part of their complete periodontal treatment program, Dr. Holzinger and our hygienists will conduct a full mouth prophylaxis and provide professional cleaning. When disease is indicated, they may recommend root planing, scaling, or antibiotic treatment with Arestin.
