Periotherapy

Periodontal disease (also called gum disease, bone disease, periodontitis or gingivitis) refers to the infection of the supportive tissues of the mouth due to toxic bacteria found in plaque. Many individuals suffer from some degree of gum disease, and if left untreated, gum disease can cause tooth loss, break down of the soft tissue in the mouth, and jaw and other significant health problems. Your periodontal therapy may include gentle removal of plaque and bacteria from beneath the gum line, or a more advanced treatment designed to restore and maintain your gum health. Since diseases like diabetes and heart-related illnesses have been linked to gum disease, it is important that you let Dr. Cothern and her team protect your health through periodontal therapy.
