Palm Beach Periodontics
A foundation of Oral Health
The periodontium is the gingiva and bone that surround the teeth. A healthy periodontium is the foundation in which all dentistry can be successful.
One would not build a house on a weak foundation, the same applies to dentistry.
Routine check-ups, cleanings, and when necessary deep cleanings are all provided by Dr. Paul Melchiorre. A personalized approach to each individual patient will ensure that all patients achieve and maintain periodontal health!
If your gums are tender, red or swollen, or if they bleed easily, you may suffer from periodontal disease.
Periodontal disease, which is also known as gum disease, is a degenerative condition caused by bacteria in plaque, which accumulates on the teeth. When not treated, periodontal disease can result in the loss of teeth, gum tissue and bone.
While gum disease is not curable, we can treat the condition and keep it under control to protect your oral health.
