Until recently, gum disease treatments have been invasive and painful. Proper treatment meant either gum surgery to cut and remove affected gums, or extracting teeth and replacing them with dentures or dental implants.
Dental Implants
Dental implants have quickly become the standard of care for patients who have lost one or many of their natural teeth. Unlike removable dentures, which rest on the gum line, dental implants are a long-term replacement for teeth that have been lost due to gum disease, tooth decay, or injury.

Gum Disease
The daily monotonous task of brushing and flossing your teeth has never been more important in order to avoid gum disease and reduce the risks gum disease places on your overall health.

It has been estimated that 75% of Americans have some form of gum disease which can be linked to serious health complications and causes dental problems that are avoidable.
