Healthy gums play an important role in your overall oral health and your physical well being. Stable, healthy gum tissue supports the teeth and serves as a barrier against harmful bacteria, protecting the body from internal inflammation and other effects of porr oral health and gum disease. Periodontal disease is progressive, and as it spreads, can create complex complications whose effects reach beyond the oral cavity. Early diagnosis is key in providing conservative treatment.

Comprehensive Periodontal Evaluation
Dr. Dall’Olmo provides comprehensive periodontal evaluations for determining the best course of dental treatment. We strive to provide conservative treatment plans that are minimally invasive, but produce optimal results for healthy and stable gums.
Dr. Dall’Olmo will assess:
- Condition of your teeth
- Extent of plaque build up
- Health and condition of the gums
- The alignment of your bite
- Integrity and health of bone structure
- Any previous health or oral health risk factors
Together, you and Dr. Dall’Olmo will build a treatment plan that will clear your gums of disease causing bacteria and allow them to begin healing. Gum disease can lead to bone loss, tooth loss, and ultimately jeopardizes the function of the bite. Effective periodontal therapy can help prevent further deterioration of the gums and teeth, preserving the natural function of the smile.
