Periodontal Treatment (gum and bone)
Periodontal, or gum, disease occurs when bacteria-containing plaque causes damage to the gums and eventually the bones as well. As the disease progresses, pockets form between the teeth and the gums, allowing the bacteria to reach and damage the bone. Left untreated, periodontal disease can cause tooth loss. Dr. Goehring offers treatment for gums and bone affected by periodontal disease. From scaling and root planting to surgical intervention, he can provide the care you need.
