Gum Disease Therapy

When not addressed promptly, gum (periodontal) disease can significantly damage oral health. This bacterial infection of the gums can also contribute to decreased overall health. Osteoporosis, heart attack, stroke, dementia, and low birth weight are just a few of the whole-body complications linked to gum disease. Learn more about how gum disease affects your heart…

Personalized Periodontal Treatments

At our Mississauga office, Dr. Sofrone alleviates the symptoms of gum disease with custom therapies tailored for your individual case.

The good news is that early-stage gum disease, called gingivitis, can be reversed with a deep cleaning by our hygienists and proper brushing and flossing at home. Gum disease that progresses beyond gingivitis typically responds well to topical antibiotic therapy. If you have severe gum disease, Dr. Sofrone may recommend the services of a trusted periodontist, a specialist in treating conditions of the gums.

Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. Periodontal exams at our Mississauga dental office are a good first line of defense to keep gum disease at bay and protect the health of your smile.
