Periodontal/Gum Disease

Periodontal disease, or gum disease, occurs in 80% of patients, per studies. We use our comprehensive exam to complete a periodontal disease screening at initial visit for all patients. By doing so, we can catch the disease before it gets worse and make life-changing adjustments for a patient.

The four types of periodontal disease are as follows:

  • Gingivitis, the initial stage of gum disease that appears in the gumline
  • Mild
  • Moderate
  • Advanced

By catching periodontal disease at gingivitis or mild, we can prevent you from a lot of pain and struggle. No one wants to experience moderate or especially advanced periodontal disease, and it’s our job at DentaCare to prevent this from happening for you.
