Gum Care and Periodontal Disease Prevention in Walla Walla, Washington

At the office of Dr. Sullivan in Walla Walla, our goal is to help you stay orally healthy. Not only are we concerned about your teeth, we also do all we can to protect the gums, bones, and tissues that support your teeth against periodontal disease. Periodontal (gum) disease is a degenerative disease that is caused by an accumulation of plaque and calculus on the teeth and gums.  In addition to tooth loss, periodontal disease has been linked to:

  • Pregnancy complications
  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Stroke

We provide several periodontal treatments, including scaling, root planing, and adjunctive therapy, to halt the progression of periodontal disease and to ensure that you remain in optimal oral health. If you experience any of the signs or symptoms of periodontal disease, such as bleeding gums, contact our office immediately to schedule an appointment with Dr. Sullivan and begin improving your oral health now.
