Routine extractions and minor surgical procedures are done in the office, however, when the necessary treatment is beyond the scope of the practice, Dr. Cassandra has a team of specialists that she works closely with to ensure you have the best treatment possible.
Gum disease is the body’s inflammatory response to the bacteria in your mouth. Diabetic complications, cardiovascular disease, and preterm and low birth weight babies are all the result of other inflammatory mechanisms in your body. It is thought that if you have severe enough periodontal disease for long enough, it will trigger these other inflammations.
The good news is that gum disease can be controlled and, even in its advanced stages, treated. Dr. Dayna Cassandra and her team do a thorough periodontal exam to diagnose and either provide or refer necessary therapy for her patients.
