Periodontal disease begins with an inflammation and infection of the gums and tissue around the teeth. Excess plaque and eventually tartar can inflame the gums due to a bacterial infection called gingivitis. When left untreated, gingivitis can escalate to periodontal disease, which causes the gums to recede from the teeth and will begin to destroy the gum tissue and bone around the teeth.

Where many dental practices may refer you to another office to treat later stages of periodontal disease, our dental team includes our own Periodontist Dr. Janet Hiers Sieweke, DMD, MS. Whether you have the beginning stages of periodontal disease or have already progressed to losing tissue and bone, Dr. Janet Hiers Sieweke can offer a treatment plan to slow and even stop the progression of the disease. This can include removing the plaque and tartar or calculus that forms below the gum line to limit the bacteria infection, promoting healthy gums.
