Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease (aka gum disease) is the advanced form of Gingivitis – a buildup of harmful bacteria that sits around the teeth and gumline. If left untreated, it can cause permanent damage to your oral health, resulting in bleeding and damaged gumlines and even the loss of one or multiple teeth. Gum disease typically occurs when plaque and tarter build up in the mouth, causing gingivitis. This is often painful, making it uncomfortable to chew.

Optimal oral health measures including daily brushing and flossing at home, routine cleanings and exams, and any additional treatment options needed are the best preventive actions to take to reduce your risk of periodontal disease. Dr. Luciani and his professional staff are here to advise and guide you through the best oral hygiene program that will keep your smile it’s healthiest.
