Periodontal Dentistry

Are red, tender, or bleeding gums something you deal with every day? If so, then you may already be experiencing periodontal disease. We can help protect your oral health and more with periodontal therapy here at Vashon Dental, so don't hesitate and contact Dr. Rasmussen for an appointment today.
What is Periodontal Dentistry?
Professionally cleaning the pockets around teeth to prevent damage to surrounding bone. Advanced cases may require surgery.
Is Periodonal Treatment Painful?
You can expect some discomfort from periodontal treatment, but it will probably be much less than you fear. The high fear factor is one of the reasons why people don't see the dentist soon enough when they notice symptoms.
Can gums heal from this?
The simple answer is, no; but there are treatments that can help to stop the problem from getting worse.
Is treatment important?
Periodontal treatment is very important. It does prevent tooth loss, which can be caused by periodontitis.
At Vashon Dental, Dr. Rasmussen and his team understand how important it is to stay informed about periodontal disease so you can take proactive steps towards preventing it or addressing it if necessary. We are here to help you from start to finish through preventive care until we reach successful treatment.
