Gum Disease Treatment
Delivering Exceptional Oral Health Care Since 1978
Gum disease is the most common disease in the United States, outranking both heart disease and cancer. Undiagnosed and untreated, it can lead to tooth loss, which is why we make every effort to either prevent the condition or to catch it in its earliest stages. In more advanced cases, we are still able to treat damaged gum and bone. Trust our more than 35 years of experience to maintain your oral health care.
If you notice pain in your mouth or swollen gums, contact our office.

At The Szikman Dental Group, P.C., we want to ensure that all our patients receive the best possible outcome from your gum disease treatment. Once we rid your mouth of any sign of gum disease, we have the ability to move in and correct damage initially caused by the disease.
We know that it’s easy to ignore symptoms that may not seem major at first. Many patients think that swollen gums or bleeding when brushing are normal reactions, but the truth is, they are warning signs telling you that all is not well. Although the main route of prevention for gum disease is thorough and consistent oral hygiene, there is no 100% successful at-home remedy once your gums fall victim to the disease.
