Periodontics - Dr Perkins DDS.

We have a wonderful and informative program for our patients, with regard to the treatment of gum tissue. More people lose their teeth due to periodontal disease, than any other reason. We help many patients fight this disease and maintain their teeth for a lifetime.

Different items contribute to gum disease, such as, stress, smoking, clenching and grinding of the teeth and poor oral hygiene. There are also systemic diseases like diabetes that can exacerbate periodontal disease. These contributors can cause bleeding, red and swollen gums, recession of the teeth and bad breath to name a few symptoms. Periodontal disease can eventually cause loose teeth and in severe cases tooth loss.

We now have a state of the art procedure with Laser Periodontal Surgery called LANAP (Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure). This is a much less invasive surgery with little or no discomfort post-operatively. This procedure also allows for much faster healing.

Many of our patients with periodontal disease, who have difficulty from time to time managing their chronic infection, may be candidates for the periodontal maintenance procedures with laser. This procedure actually treats the lining of the periodontal pocket surrounding the tooth eliminating the bacteria for 3 months. There is no down time for the patient and there is no discomfort with this procedure.

We give our patients the resources they need with proper maintenance in our office and home care instruction to be able to manage this chronic disorder.
