If you have unexplained bad breath, gums that are sore, swollen, or bleeding, or teeth that are loose or shifting, you may be experiencing gum disease. Without proper treatment, these problems can lead to more serious dental issues requiring extensive restorative work. At the office of Dr. Rizk, our talented team not only provides a full periodontal check at each appointment, they are all laser certified as well. That means that if we do discover gum disease, we can use laser technology to access the bacteria causing the problem. We also use PerioSciences, a line of products containing natural ingredients which engage your mouth’s own antioxidants to act as a tool for good dental hygiene.
