Periodontal Services (Gum Disease)

Nearly half of adults over 30 years of age are suffering from some form of gum disease, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It is often overlooked because it has few noticeable symptoms in the early stages, but as the disease progresses, it can cause permanent damage or destruction of the affected tooth. Whole mouth health is closely linked to whole body health.  Dr. John Heard and his staff try to detect signs of this disease before it gets to the advanced stages, and track and chart the disease progress if already diagnosed.  Let us help keep you and your mouth healthy with our peridontal services including:
