Periodontal Services

The Bell Dental Group offers periodontal services to maintain healthy gums.

periodontal-servicesOur team works to clean and remove the harmful, lingering bacteria that contribute to the deterioration of gums. In some cases, we place antibiotics that target and help control infections caused by bacteria.

Left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to tooth loss and increased risk of heart disease and stroke. Common symptoms of periodontal disease include:

  • Gums that bleed during or after brushing
  • Gums that appear red, or swollen
  • Teeth that feel loose
  • Persistent bad breath

If your gums are inflamed or sore, you might have the early onset of periodontal disease. Our team is able to provide an examination and make a diagnosis. In the event that your condition is in advanced stages, our dentists may recommend periodontal surgery.

Bell Dental is able to perform periodontal surgeries in-house. This surgical procedure restores normal form and function to jaw structures that have been severely affected by periodontal disease. Periodontal surgery may repair or replace jawbone structure, tissue, and periodontal ligament.
