Gum Disease Places Your Oral Health, Smile and Wellness at Risk

Gum disease causes a higher percentage of tooth loss among Norman, OK, patients than any other oral condition.

This common yet serious periodontal problem is caused by bacterial toxins that elicit the destruction of bone and other structures supporting and holding teeth in place. Without proper treatment, gum disease leads to further bone loss and often tooth loss. Losing teeth in this way leads to a cascade of oral problems and more complex dental needs. Treating gum disease as early as possible offers the best outcome for your future oral health.

The threat of gum disease goes far beyond your smile, however. Scientists have discovered strong links between gum disease and systemic conditions of the body. Some of these general health concerns include heart disease, stroke, diabetes, dementia and pregnancy complications. To help our patients identify gum disease early on, we perform routine periodontal screenings. Our experienced team also offers effective non-surgical and laser gum disease treatment to stop the progression of the disease, restore health to your smile and minimize risk to your general health.
