"I consider myself very fortunate to have met Dr. K when I did. Other dentists had advised there was nothing else to do but to pull all of my teeth and replace them with implants. This all took place approximately three years ago when I was also going through some pretty tough times in my life, when it seemed like I couldn't bear another thing to go wrong.

Dr. K took a look at my X-rays and thought maybe he could save my teeth. I made the appointment and he started the work. Within a couple of months the transformation was unbelievable. Not only did he save my teeth, but he also made me want to smile again. Friends and family just couldn't believe the difference.

I have since moved to Florida but will be returning in August for a visit, and one of my first trips will be to see Dr. K. I would recommend him to all of my family and friends. He is not only a great dentist, but also a kind and considerate person."

About Periodontal Disease &
Periodontal Treatment

Periodontal diseases are often times symptomless infections in the gums and bone which gradually destroy the support of your natural teeth. Bleeding gums can be signs of these infections and, if left untreated, can lead to loose teeth, bad breath, bone loss and tooth loss. Interestingly enough, many patients can have periodontal disease without necessarily showing bleeding, redness or gum swelling.

If left untreated, these symptomless infections have been linked to heart disease, diabetes, respiratory problems, stroke and osteoporosis. With periodontal disease, the ultimate goal is to provide you with a more self-maintainable environment around your teeth and gums so that you can help prevent the recurrence of the periodontal disease and lessen your chances of requiring future therapy!

After an accurate diagnosis, treating periodontal disease successfully can be dependent on three steps:

  1. Improving patient oral hygiene by teaching advanced brushing and flossing techniques.
  2. Providing conservative periodontal therapy consisting of scaling and root planning to remove bacteria.
  3. Re-evaluating conditions in the mouth several weeks later to monitor improvement. At this point the patient will be placed on a routine maintenance regimen or evaluated for further therapy.
