Frequently Asked Questions
What Is Periodontal Disease?
Periodontal disease is often referred to as gum disease. This is one of the most common oral health concerns affecting more than 50% of US adults. Periodontal disease occurs when plaque buildup at the gum line irritates gum tissue leading to infection. If you notice red, inflamed, swollen, or bleeding gums, contact our team right away. We offer numerous treatment options to reverse the effects of periodontal disease and restore oral health.
What Is A Root Canal, And Why Should I Have One?
Root canal typically refers to the removal of infected tissue inside a tooth, and the restoration of the damaged tooth following removal. Though this procedure has a reputation for being painful, it actually offers patients significant pain relief. The discomfort associated with root canals actually comes from the infected nerve tissue. Following removal, pain is significantly diminished. If you experience a consistent toothache, discoloration of a single tooth, or sensitivity to changes in temperature, contact our office right away.

- What Can I Expect from Cosmetic Dentistry?
