DR. HOWARD MARSHALL, DDS
The periodontal diseases are a group of inflammatory oral pathologies that affect supporting structures that surround and support teeth, causing damage to the gums, bone, ligamentous attachment to teeth, cementum and periodontal ligament.
Periodontitis begins with bacterial plaque accumulation on tooth surfaces, and after gingival inflammation develops, it causes the periodontal ligament to loosen teeth. It causes the periodontal ligament to rupture, loosening teeth. Then it causes loss of bone around the teeth.
Without dental intervention, periodontitis can lead to tooth loss, infect your arteries and can cause serious health problems.
Not all cases are the same, and people have different types of infection, different stages of gum disease, and bone loss. We treat them completely and work also with the physician if we suspect diabetes. Other offices extract more teeth, but Dr. Marshall tries to save as many teeth as is possible!
The only way that Dr. Marshall, can tell you which type of case you have by looking at your X-Rays, measuring the periodontal pockets in the gums, and examining your bite and tooth looseness. At that periodontal examination and consultation, he can explain what he can accomplish for you and what the cost will be.
You cannot treat Periodontal Disease just with surgery. Not only must the infection be removed, but you must keep the teeth clean at home.
We will teach you how to do this at our office!
