With nearly four decades of combined experience, our specialized periodontists, Dr. Alan Meltzer, can restore your health and quality of life with personalized and effective gum disease treatment.
When healthy, your bone and gum tissue fit snuggly around your teeth like a turtleneck. When you have periodontal disease, the supporting tissue and bone is destroyed forming pockets around the teeth. Over time, bacteria can accumulate and break the gum seal providing a pathway for bacteria to reach and destroy the bone supporting your teeth. Eventually, if a patient doesn’t receive gum disease treatment too much bone is lost which will, in turn, lead to tooth loss.
