The main cause of tooth loss in adults is periodontal (gum) disease. Gums that have pulled away from the teeth and bleed easily are showing signs of gum disease that, if left untreated, can lead to tooth loss. Our soft tissue management program can reverse gum disease and restore your mouth to a healthy condition. A plan of treatments and regular brushing and flossing can help eliminate periodontal disease. We remove tartar and plaque from the teeth, gums, and below the gum line to treat the disease.
