At the Dental Center, we are committed to treating all aspects of your dental health, including the gums and soft tissues that support your teeth and bone structure. The branch of dentistry that focuses on preventing and treating decay of the hard and soft tissues of your mouth is known as periodontics. Our dentists, Dr. Peacock, Dr. Ball, and Dr. Broadbent, are pleased to offer multiple periodontal treatments for diseases that affect the gums.

One of the most common conditions we see is gum disease. Gum disease is an inflammation and infection of the gums that can eventually lead to gum loss, tooth loss, and even bone loss. You may have gum disease in Orem, Utah, if:

  • Your gums bleed
  • Your teeth are loose
  • Your gum line has receded
  • You have persistent bad breath
  • There are lumps and cysts on the gums

Our team of hygienists uses deep cleaning treatments to prevent gum disease and bone loss. Your periodontal treatment will be based on the severity and individual needs of your case. If you think you may have gum disease, or if you have questions about periodontics, we invite you to contact our dental office today. We look forward to taking care of your smile.
