Periodontal treatment methods depend upon the type and severity of the disease.  Dr. Sarkosh will evaluate for periodontal disease and recommend the appropriate treatment.

Periodontal disease progresses as the sulcus (pocket or space) between the tooth and gums gets filled with bacteria, plaque, and tartar, causing irritation to the surrounding tissues.  When these irritants remain in the pocket space, they can cause damage to the gums and eventually, the bone that supports the teeth!

Most patients require at least 2 cleaning visits per year.  Sometimes more cleanings will be recommended for optimal maintenance or care.  Keeping all cleaning appointment is key to maintaining oral health.
