Periodontal Therapy & Maintenance
Mark C. Davis, DDS
Periodontal (gum) disease is a bacterial infection often present so deep under the gums that it is hard to visually see. Beginning periodontal (gum) disease is often overlooked but can lead to deep infections in the oral tissue, bad breath, low grade fevers, and bleeding upon flossing. Advanced periodontal (gum) disease is often observed due to swelling, heavy bleeding, and loosening of the teeth.
Dr. Mark Davis is committed to evaluating, informing, and treating any area of periodontal (gum) infections present in your mouth. With a simple periodontal examination we can inform patients if there are any areas of periodontal (gum) disease that has occurred in their mouth. This process takes a few minutes, is painless, and is a complimentary part of the new patient and existing patient examination.
