Periodontal Therapy

While you may not even notice mild gum disease, if left untreated, it can turn into a very big problem. Gum disease causes bleeding and tender gums, receding gums, sensitivity in the teeth, and loose teeth and can eventually lead to tooth loss. Additionally, gum disease has been linked to a number of very serious health conditions including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, respiratory disease, and certain types of cancer.

At Smiles of Carolina, we have a variety of techniques and treatments available to prevent or stop gum disease. Please call us today to schedule a periodontal appointment with Dr. Ko or Dr. Mark.
