Your smile matters!
Periodontal diseases are infections of the gums, which gradually destroy the support of your natural teeth. There are numerous disease entities requiring different treatment approaches.
Dental plaque is the primary cause of gum disease in genetically susceptible individuals. Daily brushing and flossing will prevent most periodontal conditions
A professional cleaning by your dentist or dental hygienist is the only way to remove plaque that has built up and hardened into tartar.
By scheduling regular checkups — twice a year — early stage gum disease can be treated before it leads to a much more serious condition.
If gum disease is more advanced, scaling and root planning can be performed to treat diseased periodontal pockets and gum infection. A dental hygienist uses an ultrasonic scaling device to remove plaque, tartar and food debris above and below the gum line, and hand scales the tooth and root surfaces to make them smooth and disease free. Laser treatments are also sometimes used to remove tartar deposits. If periodontal pockets are more than 5 millimeters deep, that is, if you have moderate to severe periodontitis, gingival flap surgery may be performed by a periodontist to reduce periodontal pockets, as well as bone grafting to restore lost bone.
“Always quick, always friendly, and took great care of me while being pregnant. HIGHLY recommend to EVERYONE.”
“Great doctor! The assistant is gentle and caring. They explained everything on the screen with xrays and pictures. The front explained the insurance benefits.”
“Excellent dentist and reasonable prices. Friendly staff.”
“My daughter had her first exam with them today. I gave them a heads-up about my daughter, who has autism and anxiety. We could not be more pleased with how we were treated. The receptionist is a sweetheart on the phone and in person. The dental hygienist assistant (not sure on the proper terminology) was patient and kind with instructions and a very sweet demeanor in general. And Dr. Korat was quick and precise when it came down to a game plan. Overall we are excited to have them as a dentist. 100% would recommend them on hospitality alone!”
“Dr. Korat and his office was so kind to my daughter and I at our appointment today! He was so patient with my hyper child of mine and had talked to me of all of my concerns. I’m so happy that my daughter loves him and his staff every much 💞😁”
“My 12 yr. old granddaughter had to have dental surgery done a year ago and the dentist she was going to had retired after sending her for the surgery. We went to Dr Koart and are so happy to have someone like him that comes to our community. He took his time with her and explained everything he was doing. Very careful that she didn’t see anything going into her mouth that would scare her as she was already very nervous to the point of tears. After 2 fillings and 2 baby teeth pulled she was very pleased. When I asked her on a scale of 1-10 how bad was it, she rated it a 2. I say that’s pretty good for a scared child to rate her experience of having that done , ‘while I’m still awake”, as she put it. Great, gentle , kind and efficient. We will continue being his patients.”
