Periodontal Therapy

Periodontitis is gum disease and causes a majority of tooth loss in adults. Symptoms of gum disease are bleeding gums, loose teeth, and sometimes pain, though a lot of people don’t even realize they have it…and that’s another reason to visit us at Valparaiso Family Dentistry for a cleaning and exam twice a year. If we diagnose gum disease, we may prescribe Arestin, which is a topical antibiotic that can stop periodontitis.
