Periodontitis & Gingivitis

There are two forms of Gum Disease:

  1. Gingivitis - this is the earliest form of gum disease. Plaque buildup at the gumline causes inflammation and some bleeding near the gums.
  2. Periodontitis - supporting bone and fibers around the teeth are damaged in this second-stage of gum disease, causing bone damage and loss.

Gum Disease Progression

Approximately 50% of adults in the U.S. over 30 years old are affected by periodontitis. This occurs after the onset of gingivitis, (which is caused by a collection of plaque along the gum line.) If this is not treated, plaque calcifies and has to be removed to be able to treat gum disease.

Dental treatment and healthy oral cleaning habits at home can help prevent further damage to the teeth. If not treated, shifting and loosening of the teeth will begin.


Our Doctor uses different technologies to help treat gum disease:

  • Charting - We can personalize your treatment by computerized charting. This allows us to track and analyze how treatment is working from one appointment to another.
  • Cavitron Ultrasonic Instrumentation - Modern ultrasonic equipment is available to quickly and comfortably remove plaque buildup.
  • Soft Tissue Therapy - The key to eliminating periodontal disease resides in soft tissue therapy. This will remove plaque and tartar deposits that live in the roots of the teeth.
  • Perio Protect - this customized method manages oral biofilm with very non-invasive dentistry for long-lasting oral health.
  • Cavi-jet - An air polishing system is used alongside the traditional polishing and buffering to remove stains.

Gum Disease Prevention

Visiting the dentist regularly for cleanings and exams is necessary for gum disease prevention; daily oral hygiene at home is also a vital part of preventing gum disease. Brushing and flossing will keep teeth clear of bacteria that can lead to plaque build-up and the decay of your teeth.
