How do you know if you’re suffering from periodontal or gum disease? Are your teeth loose or shifting? Are your gums swollen, bleeding, or painful? Do you have unexplained bad breath? The truth is, you may not notice any symptoms at all, but if left untreated, periodontal disease can cause severe dental issues that require extensive treatment. The good news is Sierra Smiles Tahoe can diagnose your periodontal disease early, providing treatment before you’re faced with bigger problems. Our office employs both the ezlase laser and Perio Protect to manage and treat periodontal disease.

Perio Protect combines a dental tray and prescribed solution for a home treatment which gets rid of bacteria. Our knowledgeable staff is committed to your periodontal therapy and will help you choose the course of treatment that’s best for you.
