If our dentist finds that you have periodontal disease, she will recommend a course of treatment to halt the progression of this condition and begin restoring your oral health. Treatments may be as simple as improving your at home care and receiving additional professional cleanings, or as complex as laser therapy. If needed, we will recommend a specialist for you.
