At Pine Belt Periodontics, PLLC, we provide treatment for gum disease for our patients in Hattiesburg, MS and the surrounding areas. Gum disease begins as gingivitis. If left untreated, it can advance to periodontitis and cause the gums to pull away from the teeth. This causes pockets to form beneath the gum line and infection can occur. We specialize in treating the areas of the teeth and gums that are not seen.
Dr. Brian A. Pitfield provides a wide range of treatment for gum disease, including gingivitis, adult and juvenile periodontitis, periodontitis that results from systemic disease, and necrotizing periodontitis. We provide a wide range of surgical and non-surgical treatment options, including advanced technology for less pain and faster healing with laser periodontal treatment.
When gingivitis advances to gum disease, teeth can be lost. If you have missing teeth, we provide dental implants to restore your smile. Dental implants are a titanium post that is surgically placed and designed to hold a replacement tooth, bridge, or partial denture in place. This provides greater stability for eating and speaking. In addition, we offer services that include deep cleaning, gum grafts, bone grafts, and oral cancer screening.
If you are experiencing symptoms, such as swollen or bleeding gums, you may have gingivitis and an increased risk for more serious gum disease.
