Dr. Manning is phenomenal and extremely ethical. She repaired work that another dentist did when she could have told me I required the work to be completely redone as another dentist did. Her office is inviting. Her staff is kind, professional, and efficient. She’s def the only dentist I’ll see going forward. I also love Crystal her hygienist. Overall, this is an ethical and high-quality practice that provides the highest standards of care.
Embrace Confidence and Defy Gum Disease
Periodontal (gum) disease is a progressive disease that, if left untreated, may result in tooth loss. Gum disease begins with the inflammation and irritation of the gum tissues that surround and support the teeth. The toxins in plaque can cause this inflammation and ongoing bacterial infections.
The bacterial infection forms in the gums, causing deep pockets to form between the teeth and gums. If treated promptly by a periodontist, the effects of mild inflammation (known as gingivitis) are completely reversible. However, if the bacterial infection is allowed to progress, periodontal disease begins to destroy the gums and the underlying jawbone, promoting tooth loss. In some cases, the bacteria from this infection can travel to other areas of the body via the bloodstream.
