Gum Infection Therapy (Periodontal Disease)

Infections and inflammation of the gums will cause you to lose your teeth but more importantly can have serious systemic affects on your body.  Many studies show connections between gum infections and increased heart disease, diabetes and asthma, as well as others, and because gum disease is painless until the latest stages, most people don’t even know they have it! Since a healthy mouth is so important to your overall well being, Dr Cribbs and her dental hygiene team look for the signs of gum infection at every oral hygiene appointment.  There are a variety of gum infection therapies and Dr. Cribbs provides non-surgical conservative treatments.
