You might be surprised to learn that up to 80% of American adults unknowingly have some form of periodontal disease. This serious condition, caused by an inflammatory response to bacterial plaque, can wreak havoc with your oral and overall health. There’s good news, though; our board-certified periodontist Dr. Alexander Schrott offers targeted periodontal therapy to halt this stealthy disease’s progression and promote good oral health.

At your exam, your periodontist, Dr. Alexander Schrott, will evaluate your gums, looking for redness, swelling, and other signs of infection. When periodontal disease is diagnosed early, it can be relieved with a thorough dental cleaning and proper brushing and flossing at home.

If your condition has worsened, we may recommend treatment with scaling and root planing. These two services, when paired together, allow us to clean deep beneath your gumline. During your deep cleaning procedure, we’ll remove the harmful plaque and calculus responsible for your inflammation. We may also recommend treatment with an antibiotic for even better results.
