Periodontal disease, or periodontitis, is a major disease affecting the gums of a person. It is an inflammatory condition that affects the gums surrounding the teeth, which eventually progresses onto the jawbone if left untreated. When the plaque and tartar accumulate on the surface of the teeth, they infect the nearby gums as well. This leads to a condition called gingivitis. When gingivitis becomes severe, it becomes periodontitis.
We focus our dental cleaning sessions on minimizing the chances of dental health problems and are designed to help you develop a beautiful and clean smile that lasts for life. As we note symptoms of periodontitis (gum disease), we offer comprehensive periodontal therapy services to halt and prevent additional infection at our facility in Mankato.
