Periodontics Long Beach

Bacteria formation on the teeth is the main cause of periodontal disease and the source of plaque build up.  If left untreated
periodontal disease can lead to gingivitis and eventually tooth loss.

Maintaining the appropriate oral health and care is supported by following the proper prevention methods.  Going for regular cleanings and check-ups coupled with excellent hygiene habits are the best ways to avoid unnecessary periodontal treatment.

There are various dental procedures that can help diagnose, prevent and treat periodontal disease such as root planing, scaling, and gingival curettage.  In some more severe cases, surgical treatment may be required to correct the damage.
