The disease affecting the tooth-supporting structures like gums, bones, cementum, and the periodontal ligament is called periodontal disease. It is an advanced form of gum disease. If the periodontal disease is left untreated, it can cause tooth loss. Also, the bacteria causing periodontal disease has been shown to increase the risk of developing heart disease, diabetes and has been linked to a higher risk of premature birth in pregnant women. It is important to protect your gums and tooth-supporting structures. Signs and symptoms of periodontal infection include bleeding gums, swollen and red gums, gum recession, loss of attachment, tooth mobility, and mild ache in the gums. Most of the periodontal destruction originates from deposits of plaque and tartar. This favors the growth of bacteria that destroys the gums.
At the early stages, gum disease may present as ‘gingivitis’ where the gums are inflamed and may bleed. However, periodontal disease is both preventable and treatable. At every check-up appointment, you are screened for periodontal disease. We’ve observed exceptional results with our non-surgical treatments, including the latest ultrasonic methods and a wide variety of irrigants.
Periodontal disease can be non-surgically treated with scaling and root planing, also known as deep cleaning. The unhealthy granulation tissue, plaque, and tartar are removed using high-grade ultrasonic instruments along with the suitable irrigants. With regular follow-ups for proper periodontal maintenance, non-surgically managed periodontal disease has shown excellent results. Our team is highly experienced in treating gum disease. We make sure to treat the condition in a minimally invasive manner unless it demands a more invasive treatment solution.
Dr. Dobee IS AMAZING, she helped me with my deep clean and continued to follow up with me afterwards to make sure I was experiencing minimal pain throughout the recovery process. She really cares about her patients and I HIGHLY recommend her!
Wow Dr. Dobee is by far the best dentist I've ever been to. She's not only really intelligent and knows exactly what she's doing but she's also very funny and makes the whole experience of going to a dentist a really great one.
I couldn't be happier with my care at Dr Dobee's office! Everyone there is amazing and thanks to Dr Dobee I am no longer afraid of the dentist. Especially thanks to Des at the front desk for making all my visits seamless. Love you guys!
Best dentist I've had and so glad I found her…outstanding in her field but also great interpersonal skills and sensitive to her patients needs. Staff Joanna and Des are professional and make patient feel comfortable and welcomed. I enjoy my visits and it is because the staff and Dentists are ON IT!
I had some problems with my insurance which the front desk took care of and they were super friendly while waiting for responds regarding my insurance. My visit was very informative also the treatment plans weren't pushed and forced like other dentists do. So they're going to be my place for dental treatments from now on!
I'm so fortunate to have found dr Dobee !
She's a beautiful soul! Very caring & professional !
Very trusting ! I have had the bad luck to get bad dentistry practiced upon my teeth , Dobee has been do everything she can to help me out with the budget I have . Her work is worth every penny !
Dr. Dobee has a heart of gold and the skills of an amazing dentist. I had the pleasure of having her take care of my teeth and make solid recommendations on what I need for future work. I walked out with super clean teeth and a well taken care of smile.
I came here because of the yelp reviews and they didn't disappoint. Great availability and friendly staff.
A trip to the dentist you will actually enjoy! It's the first time I've ever looked forward to my next dental appointment. I mean what dentist do you know that's had a private dinner with Obama??
