Periodontal disease or gum disease is caused by bacteria in plaque. Without consistent dentist visits and removal of plaque and tartar, this bacteria can build up and start to infect your teeth and gums. Dr. Adam Smooke treats gingivitis, periodontitis and advanced periodontitis to prevent further damage to teeth and gums. We provide a full oral exam and cleaning to remove built up plaque and tartar. Dr. Smooke does offer advanced treatment in periodontal scaling and root planing, minor tissue recontouring, and bone grafting.
How to prevent gum disease?
- Brushing and flossing consistently at least twice a day
- Using an antimicrobial mouth rinse daily to help control plaque
- Scheduling regular check ups with Dr. Smooke for cleaning.
