Gingivitis, an early stage of gum disease, is both treatable and preventable with routine dental visits to Bay City dentist Dr. Daryle Mahnke.
Left untreated, gum disease can silently compromise a patient’s oral health and even lead to tooth loss. Most patients do not realize they have gum disease until it is either spotted during preventive care by Dr. Mahnke in Bay City or it begins to create more complex dental problems that require immediate attention.
For patients who have more advanced gum disease, Dr. Mahnke offers periodontal therapy to restore oral health and support the natural teeth. If necessary, Dr. Mahnke will create a personalized treatment plan to repair gum tissue and tooth structure that may be damaged by periodontitis- advanced gum disease. In many cases a thorough cleaning of the deep recesses and pockets of the gums will restore health.
Healthy gums are the foundation of a healthy smile- and routine visits to Dr. Mahnke are important for maintaining healthy gums!
