Periodontal treatment is designed to prevent and treat periodontal disease (also known as gum disease). If your gums are red, swollen, or bleed easily, you may suffer from periodontal disease. Periodontal disease can lead to bone loss, gum loss, and tooth loss; severe cases can also contribute to serious health problems, including heart disease, diabetes, respiratory conditions, pregnancy complications, and stroke. Dr. Stragier and our dental team are dedicated to treating and preventing periodontal disease to help you avoid these dental and health problems. We offer non-surgical and laser periodontal treatments to help you improve your oral health. It is important to visit your San Diego, California dentist every six months to check for periodontal disease and other dental problems. We encourage you to call Balboa Dental Care soon to schedule your appointment. We are committed to helping you achieve optimal oral health!
