Gum disease

Gum disease or periodontal disease is inflammation of the gums that gradually pull the gums from the teeth. The resulting spaces become infected with bacteria that damage the supporting bone. The infection causes gums to bleed and can lead to tooth loss.

Dr. Andrea Diamond specializes in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of periodontal disease. Depending on the severity of the gum disease, we offer a periodontal treatment to clean the bacteria and reduce the infection.

The non-surgical treatment include scaling, root planning, and medications. Surgical treatments include flap surgery, bone grafting, soft tissue grafts, enamel matrix derivative application and guided tissue regeneration. Dr. Andrea Diamond works closely with a periodontist is surgery is need it.
