Don't Give Up the Fight on Periodontal Disease
Periodontal disease, if left untreated, can lead to devastating bone and tooth loss. Periodontal disease has also been linked to other serious health conditions, such as heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. If you have been diagnosed with gum disease, you might have already undergone treatments for addressing the infection, such as scaling and root planing. If prior treatments do not seem to be improving your condition, there is hope. Gum flap surgery, also called osseous surgery, is an effective treatment to remove root surface tartar deposits, smooth bone irregularities, and reduce pocket depths to ultimately save your teeth. There is no time to lose. If you have gum disease in Albuquerque, NM, call 505-219-4863 to seek treatment immediately with Dr. Craig Steichen.
