We make our patient’s oral health a top priority. With this in mind, Dr. Joel Singer has developed an excellent periodontal program to help you avoid tooth loss and maintain healthier bone levels. For those patients at risk of or who have developed periodontal disease, our dentist can offer you gentle, comprehensive gum care and soft-tissue treatments to help you restore your smile and oral health.
Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a degenerative condition caused by harmful bacteria in your mouth. When the bacteria infects and inflames the gum tissues, it can cause significant damage to your oral health. If left untreated, it can also lead to gum recession, tooth loss and bone loss. Gum disease is a serious matter. It has been linked to a number of systemic conditions, including diabetes, heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis, respiratory disease and pregnancy complications.
