Periodontal Therapy


Oral health can affect your smile and wellness. Gum or periodontal disease can lead to bone and tooth loss that can change your smile and your facial appearance. Other health risks linked to periodontal disease include type 2 diabetes, certain cancers, stroke, and cardiovascular disease. For those that have periodontal disease, there is hope with our general dentistry treatments. River Ranch Dental offers effective periodontal therapy to protect your smile and your health.

Gum Infection Treatment

Periodontal disease is a type of infection that attacks your gums. When plaque and tartar accumulate, the bacteria in these substances inflame the gums and tissues surrounding your teeth. This can cause the gums to begin receding from the tooth roots, also causing breakdown of tissue and bone in the jaw. To restore gum health, you must stop the infection. Closing the gaps between the teeth and gums can reduce bacteria growth and help restore health to the gums. At River Ranch Dental, we can help fight gum infection through medications and deep cleanings that help remove the source of infection while allowing the gums to heal.
