To keep your smile as healthy as it is beautiful.
Periodontal disease, commonly known as gingivitis or gum disease, refers to inflammation and infection of the gums due to plaque and bacterial buildup. Most Americans experience periodontal disease at some time in their lives, and even accidental neglect of our gums can lead to breakdown of the supportive tissues in the mouth. Left untreated, periodontal disease can result in bad breath, receding gums, tooth loss, or even bleeding gums.
At each visit, Dr. Ostrem carefully assesses your teeth for signs and symptoms of periodontal disease, and the Ostrem Dental team is highly trained in both preventative and restorative periodontal therapies to keep your smile as healthy as it is beautiful.
