Fight Gum Disease with Periodontal Therapy in Tulsa

Gingivitis (the first stage of periodontal disease) affects roughly 75% of American adults. Left untreated, gingivitis can develop into the more serious forms of gum disease. With periodontal therapy, Marshall Family Dentistry can halt or sometimes reverse the effects of gum disease while keeping the infection from worsening.

Reversing the Effects of Gum Disease

Gum disease develops in the pockets at the gum line of each tooth. Periodontal therapy removes plaque and tartar from deep within the pockets, cleaning out toxins that could cause gingivitis to worsen. As gum disease may show no symptoms, make sure to get checked regularly. Research has shown periodontal disease as a harmful contributing factor to other health problems including heart disease and other heart-related issues.

Marshall Family Dentistry offers the use of lasers, increasing the effectiveness of periodontal therapy. Lasers are a conservative, painless addition to traditional periodontal therapies. Few people know that gum disease increases the risk of heart disease and stroke, so healthy gums make for greater overall health.
