Dr. Gardner’s practice provides a variety of services for the treatment of periodontal issues. Most adults that lose their teeth lose their teeth due to Periodontal Disease. We take that very seriously and Periodontal care and support is a cornerstone of our practice. We pride ourselves on the fact that we are very conservative in our treatment recommendations, yet very proactive in preventing as well as treating periodontal disease.
Usually, the early stages of periodontal disease are best treated with non-surgical periodontal therapy. Even in severe cases, non-surgical periodontal therapy often precedes more in-depth therapy, often requiring referral to a Periodontal Specialist. This is done to improve the overall tissue quality prior to referral and also to help limit the areas possibly requiring surgery.
