Many people experience periodontal (Perio) Disease, often without realizing it. Periodontal disease is responsible for adult tooth loss, shifting teeth, bleeding gums, bad breath, and receding gums. The truth is, it is preventable with proper hygiene and home care. If diagnosed early, gum disease treatments are less invasive and effective than in the advanced stage. In the early stage, the condition is entirely reversible. Periodontal Disease can be controlled but not cured in the later stages of the disease. Your initial visit with Dr Lawson-Myers includes a complete evaluation of your gums and supportive tissues. At Liguanea Family Dental, you will have access to advanced periodontal therapy to heal, restore and maintain your oral health.
