For some, it may be surprising to learn that up to 80% of the population unknowingly has some form of periodontal disease, commonly called gum disease. If left untreated, gum disease can cause tooth and gum loss, as well as contribute to heart attack, stroke, and pregnancy complications. At Signature Smiles, you will find help with gum disease. Our team uses proven therapies that will combat gum disease and maximize your oral health.

With early-stage gum disease, or gingivitis, there are often very few or even no symptoms. Some patients may notice a little bleeding when brushing or see red, swollen gums. Our team can help alleviate gingivitis with a deep cleaning and instruction on how to properly brush and floss for optimal oral health. With advanced cases of gum disease, patients may benefit from antibiotic therapy. If a patient shows signs of severe gum disease, then we will remove the diseased tissue. Our staff will help you determine with treatment is right for you as well as give you tips for maintaining healthy gums in the future.
