Our dentist and dental team at the office of Ryan D. Sparks, DMD are committed to helping you avoid the dangers of periodontal disease, which is also known as gum disease. Periodontal disease is caused by the accumulation of plaque and calculus on the teeth, which worsens when daily brushing and flossing are neglected. A degenerative condition, periodontal disease can lead to tooth loss, gum loss, and bone loss. When left untreated, periodontal disease can also contribute to a number of serious health problems, including:

• Diabetes
• Stroke
• Pregnancy complications
• Heart disease
• High blood pressure
• Respiratory conditions

We provide periodontal treatment at our Corvallis, Oregon dental office to help you avoid these serious health problems. We offer non-surgical treatment, including scaling and root planing, to treat mild and moderate cases of periodontal disease. We also provide gum grafting to treat receding gums caused by periodontal disease. If your gums are swollen, tender, red, or bleed easily, you may have periodontal disease. We encourage you to contact our dental office today to schedule your appointment with Dr. Sparks and begin your journey to optimal oral health!
