Mark Isler, DDS, MS Helps Our Patients Who Struggle With Gum Disease
Gingivitis is a reversible condition, one that can develop as bacteria at the bases of teeth infiltrate the gums and gather on your roots. When the problem is not resolved in time, it progresses to more advanced periodontitis, or periodontal disease. This stage of the infection creates lasting difficulties for your well-being. To make managing it easier, we can have you start treatment with Dr. Mark Isler, our on-site periodontal specialist.
When it is not being managed, periodontal disease will lead to greater risks for tooth loss, and it will make you vulnerable to general health complications as bacteria enter the bloodstream and move to other parts of the body. Patients with untreated gum disease can face higher risks for heart problems and other serious conditions!
You can talk with Dr. Isler about your history with gum disease, review the current state of your periodontal health, and learn about different treatment options that are available to you. Surgical and non-surgical responses can be recommended based on your needs. For patients who have suffered extensive tissue damage or tooth loss, grafting services and implant dentistry are both offered. You can also begin ongoing periodontal appointments to control your infection and prevent future complications.
Because we can provide specialized care at our location, we can make advanced treatments easier to start. This convenience can make the potentially stressful situation of caring for an advanced infection easier, and it can protect you against frustrating delays in services.
Periodontal problems should be taken seriously, as leaving them untreated can have severe consequences for your smile and general health. Dr. Mark Isler is our on-site periodontist; if you need to do something about an infection that has progressed beyond gingivitis, you can enjoy care at our location that is tailored to your needs.
