Periodontics in Virginia

Periodontics is the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases affecting the gums. Also known as gum disease, periodontal disease involves bacterial growth (a colorless film called “plaque”) that gradually destroys the tissue surrounding the teeth. If plaque is not removed, it builds up on the teeth and ultimately irritates the gums and causes bleeding and receding gums. If left untreated, bone and surrounding tissue will decay, resulting in loose teeth, or worse, tooth loss. More than 75 percent of Americans over age 35 have some form of gum disease.

Our skilled periodontists in Virginia will help you maintain healthy gums through the detection and treatment of diseases like periodontitis and gingivitis (i.e. inflammation, swelling, and bleeding of the gums). By detecting and treating gum disease in its earliest stages, we can help you avoid the chronic bacterial infections that can lead to tooth loss and other serious complications. You can also avoid the “long in the tooth” look of premature aging due to receding gums.

Dr. Miller is the best dentist I have had in my 67 years of life. I have used at least 10 other dentists during my lifetime, and I consider Dr. Miller to be head and shoulders above all the rest.
