Periodontal Disease

Dependable Periodontal Solutions

Let Our Experts Restore the Health of Your Gums

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease develops when plaque and tartar are allowed to build up along and under the gum line. At Brostowitz Family Dentistry, our dental care team can help you determine if you are experiencing the effects of periodontal disease. If you are diagnosed with this condition, we can help you repair the damage.

Stages of Gum Disease

Periodontal disease starts with Gingivitis and then progresses to gum disease. If plaque isn't properly removed from your teeth, it hardens and becomes tartar. It will then release toxins that cause inflammation and destroy your gum’s attachment to your tooth.
Advanced stages happen when there is bone loss due to the tartar and toxins produced. We are able to diagnose and offer treatment, from a simple cleaning to periodontal surgery.
