Dr. Leo Man and Dr. Roxanne Ramirez provide periodontics in Santa Ana, California, to help treat gum disease and improve your oral health. The periodontal treatments available at SA Dental include:
Periodontics is a field of dental specialty that focuses on preventing, diagnosing and treating gum disease and other conditions that affect the gums and soft tissues of the mouth. Gum disease is caused by harmful bacteria trapped in plaque. It is a degenerative condition that begins with a mild inflammation of the gums and progresses to a more severe condition causing tooth loss, gum recession and bone loss if left untreated. While the mild stage of periodontal disease can be halted and the disease eliminated, the more severe form of the disease cannot be completely eradicated. It can, however, be brought under control with regular professional care and improved at-home oral hygiene.
Please continue to visit our dentists regularly. Each time you come into our office for one of your regular dental exams, we will check for periodontal disease. By diagnosing the disease early, we can provide faster and more effective care to improve your oral health. If you are diagnosed with gum disease, our dentists will work with you to create an individualized treatment plan that meets your needs.
