Periodontal Disease & Treatment

Periodontal gum disease is a chronic problem, much like diabetes, and must be controlled through regular periodontal cleanings. These symptoms are often silent and not painful until it is advanced.  In order to prevent tooth loss, Dr. Kraus and his Hygienist will customize your treatment if you are diagnosed with a periodontal condition, This maintenance is necessary even if you have had periodontal surgery or a non-surgical treatment. Periodontal visits are required on a more frequent basis than the six month interval often recommended for patients with healthy gums.
