Gum Disease Treatment

Periodontal (gum) disease is today’s #1 cause of tooth loss among North American adults!

Non-Surgical Periodontal (Gum) Disease Treatment – ARESTIN®

Periodontal diseases occur when a bacterial infection develops where the gums join the teeth. Harmful bacteria release enzymes that can cause underlying bone loss, receding gums and eventual tooth loss.

A periodontal assessment is one of the most important things you can do for yourself and your family for prevention of gum disease.
