Can you recognize the signs and symptoms of periodontal disease?


TMJ symptoms may include headaches, discomfort from clicking or popping of the jaw joints, limited mouth opening and movement, earaches, and neck and shoulder pain.


Approximately 75% of all Americans have some form of periodontal disease, known by many as gum disease.

Research shows that untreated gum disease may have a significant affect on heart disease, stroke, low birthweight babies, ulcers, and diabetes.

Protecting your periodontal health brings many benefits. You can chew with more comfort. You can smile and speak with greater confidence. You can keep dental costs down by preventing future problems.


Conscientious care of your mouth at home and regular visits with your dentist and periodontist are key to optimum dental health.


Maintenance therapy is an ongoing program designed to prevent disease in the gum tissues and bone supporting your teeth.

Our Patients Say...

Dr. Pierce was extremely thorough with me explaining the results of my test, options of treatment, and even encouraging a 2nd opinion if I desired. Her honesty, advice and concern for my benefit should be a model for all in her profession.
