Periodontics is a field of dentistry dedicated to safeguarding the health of your gums and the soft tissues within your mouth. It includes everything from the prevention and diagnosis of gum disease to treatments to manage the condition and improve your oral health. Dr. Candice Arrick will check your mouth for signs of gum disease during each of your regular cleanings and exams, and if you are diagnosed, will work with you to create a treatment plan that meets your needs.

Periodontal treatments available at our office include:

Gum disease, the primary concern of periodontal care, is caused by the presence of bacteria within plaque. As plaque accumulates on your teeth, these bacteria can provoke irritation and inflammation of your gum tissues, leading to the development of the disease. Gum disease begins with the early stage of gingivitis, which is marked by redness, tenderness, bleeding and swollen gums. Without prompt attention, gingivitis can progress to periodontitis, a more advanced stage characterized by gum recession, potential bone loss and even tooth loss.

Effective management of gingivitis usually involves regular professional cleanings and an enhanced oral care routine at home. However, when gum disease advances to periodontitis, it typically demands more extensive and frequent treatment. Our dentists and team are dedicated to delivering high-quality care for gum disease, aiming to restore your smile to its former health.
