Non Surgical Periodontics Therapy
Helping Patients Fight Gum Disease Without Surgery
Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease or periodontitis, is progressive and destructive, harming your smile as well as impacting other areas of your health. The oral systemic connection is very serious as oral bacteria has links to many systemic diseases and can significantly raise your risk of heart attack and stroke as well as cause other health problems.
Early intervention offers the best possible outcome with gum disease and the ability to leverage minimally invasive options, such as non-surgical periodontal therapy. While scaling and root planing, a careful and deep cleansing of the gums and their pockets, is often used in periodontal therapy, Dr. Mighion’s Mishawaka, Indiana dental office also leverages cutting edge Ozone Therapy in periodontal therapy.
