Gum Disease

Gum disease is really a disease of the bone surrounding teeth.  The technical diagnosis is Periodontitis or Periodontal disease.  Uncontrolled gum disease can lead to tooth loss and may be related to other systemic diseases. 


Early treatment is most effective and involves removing the tartar or calculus beneath the gums that is causing the bacteria buildup and inflammation. 


Dr. Alford works hard with his patients that have Periodontitis to keep the process under control and to maintain healthy gums and healthy habits once the disease process is halted.
