Periodontal Disease Treatment in Stockton California

At Nguyen Dental Practice, we are dedicated to helping prevent periodontal (gum) disease. Periodontal disease begins when plaque and calculus (tartar) are allowed to accumulate on the teeth and gums. When left untreated, this accumulation will cause periodontal disease and bone, gum, and tooth loss. Periodontal disease has also been linked to many serious health conditions, including:

  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Pregnancy complications
  • Stroke
  • Diabetes

Maintaining a good oral hygiene routine is crucial if you would like to avoid periodontal disease. A good oral hygiene routine should include flossing and brushing daily, maintaining a balanced diet, and visiting the dentist at least once every six months for your cleanings and exams. We are happy to provide several periodontal disease procedures for those who need it, including laser therapy and scaling and root planing. For more information on periodontal disease and its treatment, we invite you to contact our office soon.
