Periodontics - Gum Treatment Services

At Fallston Family Dentistry we offer treatment for all types of gum disease. Gingivitis, or inflammation of the gums, can be treated by maintaining a regular cleaning schedule with one of our caring hygienists.

Gingivitis is caused by plaque, which accumulates on teeth after eating and drinking. If plaque is left on teeth too long, it hardens into a substance known as calculus or tartar. This tartar sits on the teeth and on their roots below the gumline, making it difficult to remove. Bacteria starts to destroy the bone supporting the teeth and if left untreated can result in loose teeth or, even worse, tooth loss.

We offer state-of-the-art treatment for gingivitis and periodontal disease, including non-surgical deep cleaning, as well as special medications to specifically treat your gums and help restore a healthy beautiful smile.
