Healthy Gums For Healthy Smiles

Periodontics is the dental specialty concerned with the structures such as gum tissue, which surround and support your teeth. Maintaining healthy gums is critical if you want to keep your natural teeth. Gum diseases such as gingivitis or periodontitis cause your hums to shrink and pull away from your teeth. Once they lose support, the teeth fall out. Even worse, gum disease, which is caused by excessive bacteria in the mouth, can affect your overall physical health and lead to other serious problems, including heart attack and stroke. To help prevent these problems, Dr. Gage offers periodontal care that includes:

  • Correction of excessive gum tissue & uneven gums
  • Scaling & root planning or deep cleaning
  • Flap surgery to eliminate pockets of bacteria
  • Bone grafting to replace lost bone tissue and support dental implants
  • Extractions to remove teeth that are diseased or damaged beyond repair

Preventive Dentistry

Preventive dentistry is closely tied to periodontal care. Dr. Gage helps patients prevent dental problems and periodontal diseases with:

  • Comprehensive periodontal exams (at least once yearly)
  • Regular dental cleanings (at least twice each year)
  • Regular dental exams (at least twice each year)
  • Fluoride treatments
  • Routine re-care
