Gum Disease Prevention and Treatment

Periodontal Services

Did you know that your gums also greatly impact the overall health of your mouth and entire body?

The health of your teeth alone is of the utmost importance to us, but even more so is the effect your oral health has on entire body. In addition to tooth loss, constant infection in your gums can increase your risk for heart attack as well as several other conditions.

There are many factors that increase your chances of periodontal (gum) disease, from smoking to certain medications, so it is important to see a dentist regularly to assess the state of your gums.

Star Ranch Dental offers many of the same procedures a periodontist would perform to treat gum disease, including scaling and root planing, deep cleanings and soft tissue treatments.

Emphasizing the treatment of periodontal disease, Dr. Barnett and Dr. Geiger offer several conservative treatments (antibiotic treatments and specialized cleaning) as well as periodontal surgery for severe cases.
