Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a common and serious oral health condition that affects the gums and the surrounding structures that support the teeth. It is caused by the buildup of plaque and bacteria on the teeth, leading to inflammation, infection, and eventual damage to the gums and bone. If left untreated, periodontal disease can result in tooth loss and other health complications. However, with proper care and treatment, it can be managed effectively. At Think Oral Implants and Periodontics, PLLC, Dr. Miriam Ting and her experienced team provide comprehensive care for gum health and wellness, offering a range of advanced treatments to effectively manage periodontal disease.
Understanding Periodontal Disease
Periodontal disease is a progressive condition that starts with gingivitis, which is the inflammation of the gums. If left untreated, it can progress to periodontitis, which is the more severe form of gum disease that affects the supporting structures of the teeth, including the bone and ligaments. Common signs and symptoms of periodontal disease include:
- Red, swollen gums
- Bleeding gums
- Persistent bad breath
- Loose teeth
- Receding gums
It is vital to seek professional care if any of these symptoms are present to prevent further damage to the gums and teeth.

At Think Oral Implants and Periodontics, PLLC, Dr. Miriam Ting and her experienced team provide comprehensive care for periodontal disease. They offer a range of advanced treatments tailored to the needs of each patient, including:
- Non-surgical treatments. In the early stages of gum disease, non-surgical treatments such as scaling and root planning (deep cleaning), antimicrobial rinses, and local antibiotics may be effective in removing plaque and bacteria and promoting gum healing.
- Laser periodontal therapy. This is a minimally invasive and advanced treatment option that uses laser technology to remove diseased tissue and promote gum healing.
- Pocket reduction surgery. In more advanced cases of gum disease, surgical intervention may be necessary to remove deep pockets that have formed between the gums and teeth. This helps to reduce the risk of further infection and allows for better oral hygiene practices.
- Dental implants. If tooth loss has occurred as a result of gum disease, dental implants may be recommended to replace the missing teeth and restore proper function and aesthetics.
