Periodontal Care

Periodontal Care

Periodontal care is a crucial aspect of dental health, focusing on the structures supporting the teeth, including gums and bones. Green Dental of Alexandria is at the forefront of providing comprehensive periodontal care, ensuring patients maintain excellent oral health. Our clinic specializes in both the diagnosis and treatment of periodontal diseases, utilizing state-of-the-art technology and advanced treatment methods.

Understanding Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease, commonly known as gum disease, is an inflammatory condition affecting the gums and, in severe cases, can impact the jawbone. This disease is typically caused by bacteria found in plaque, leading to gum inflammation, bleeding, and if left untreated, can result in tooth loss. Early diagnosis and treatment are vital in preventing the progression of periodontal disease.

Key Indicators of Periodontal Disease:

  • Red, swollen, or tender gums
  • Bleeding while brushing or flossing
  • Receding gums
  • Persistent bad breath
  • Loose or shifting teeth

Jennifer B.

I just had my first appointment at Green Dental and I couldn't be happier with their service. I tend to be nervous when going to the dentist, but all of the staff were very welcoming and nice. The exam chair massages your back as you're getting your cleaning and there's a television on the ceiling to distract you from dental work. The cleaning and evaluation was very gentle. Thanks, Green Dental!

Top shelf dental care. Convenient location via METRO/King Street Station. Patient's dental chair features back massage capability along with TV viewing (CNN). Dr. Hye Park is very smooth. Dental experience beyond compare. I actually enjoy going to the dentist now.

Once again, even the cleaning was uneventful. Love being able to look outside while I'm in the chair. Dr. Park has the most gentle & tiny hands ! Love this place and the staff.
