Easy-going and friendly office. The hygienist - Rebecca was so sweet and very gentle. I loved how thorough the team was in gathering health, dental history, and periodontal assessment as well as making sure all my concerns were addressed. Dr. Amato was really nice and very conservative in his recommendations. Highly recommend this dental office.

FAQs About Periodontal Therapy
What causes gum disease?
Gum disease occurs when your gum tissues become infected.
Bacteria are constantly forming on your teeth. Poor oral hygiene allows the bacteria to form plaque, which eventually hardens to tartar.
Tartar build-up can spread below the gum line, which leads to more severe gum disease.
Once this happens, it’s no longer reversible with at-home treatment. Seeking out a dental professional will prevent further infection.
Our experts use advanced techniques and modern technology to get your gums and teeth healthy again.
What are the types of gum disease?
There are two main types of gum disease:
Gingivitis is the early stage of gum disease. Signs may include:
- Red, swollen, or sensitive gums
- Bad breath
- Tartar buildup
Periodontitis is the advanced stage of gum disease. Symptoms include:
- Chronic bad breath
- Painful chewing when eating
- Receding gum line
- Loose teeth
Reach out to us as soon as you notice any of these symptoms to stop gum disease from getting worse.
Are periodontal treatments painful?
Our periodontics team will ensure you’re comfortable before, during, and after your procedures.
If you’re still feeling anxious, we’re happy to offer sedation dentistry to alleviate any fear you may have.

Your teeth and gums may be tender after your treatment.

What can I do to prevent gum disease?
Good oral hygiene and regular professional cleanings will help treat gum disease in its early stages.
- Brushing your teeth at least two times per day, for at least two minutes each time
- Floss at least once a day
- Visit your dentist for regular cleanings
Advanced gum disease requires more extensive treatment.
