12Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is the # 1 cause of adult tooth loss in the United States and can pose a serious risk to both your oral and overall health. You can have periodontal disease and not know that you have it. If left untreated, periodontal disease erodes the bone in the jaw, often causing tooth loss. The bacteria that cause periodontal disease have also been linked to systemic medical problems such as diabetes, stroke, heart disease and low birth weight babies.

At your check-up appointments, Dr. Beizaee or Dr. Saati will check your gums for periodontal disease and provide the appropriate periodontal treatment and follow-up care if they detect it in your mouth. Most periodontal treatment, such as scaling and root planing, Arestin treatment, and periodontal maintenance are non-surgical and can be done easily and comfortably in our office.
