What is Periodontitis?
(Gum Disease)

Periodontal disease is a low grade, chronic infection of the gum and bone tissue that surround teeth. It is primarily caused by plaque, a bacterial biofilm that develops on the teeth.
If left untreated, it can result in inflammation, bone loss, recession, endodontic infection (root canal), poor esthetics, sensitivity, abscesses, pain and tooth loss. Untreated periodontal disease also contributes to the severity of other systemic inflammatory diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Treatments for periodontitis include:

  • Soft Tissue Grafting
  • Bone grafting
  • Pocket Reduction
  • Surgery
  • Gingivectomy
  • Prophylaxis or Maintenance
  • Distal Wedge
  • Frenectomy
  • Periodontal Surgery
  • Systemic Antibiotic Therapy
  • Osseous Correction
  • Guided Tissue Regeneration
  • Extractions of  Hopeless Teeth
  • Local Antibiotic Therapy

Services and Procedures


Unfortunately, extractions may be indicated due to severe bone loss, decay, root fracture, impaction, or other acute conditions.  Whether you require a single tooth extraction, multiple extractions, or removal of wisdom teeth, Dr. Saxon will ensure that you are well taken care of in a safe and comfortable setting.
