La Jolla Gum Disease
Gum disease is very prevalent in our society, affecting more than half of adults, according to some studies. Have you noticed loose teeth, bad breath, or swollen or bleeding gums?

Did you know that, if left untreated, periodontal disease and gingivitis can lead to periodontitis, bone loss or tooth decay in your mouth or even a heart attack from the potentially invasive bacterial infection?

Highly-regarded La Jolla gum disease dentist, Gary Sigafoos, D.D.S., is a periodontist with the experience to offer the most effective periodontics treatment options. Depending on the severity of the condition, we may be able to help with non-surgical treatment options such as scaling and root planing, which means a deep cleaning of pockets.

In more serious cases, we may recommend surgical treatment to regenerate bone that has decayed or to close pockets and make them free of gum infection.

In any event, regular appointments at LaJolla Periodontics are important even after the first treatment and can help you avoid a recurrence of gingivitis.

It's easy to make an appointment. Just call us at (858) 568-8941 or stop in to arrange for a consultation. Our friendly team will be happy to discuss the many affordable options available to meet your dental needs.
