If your gums are tender, red or swollen or if they bleed easily, you may suffer from periodontal disease. Periodontal disease, which is also known as gum disease, is a degenerative condition caused by bacteria in plaque, which accumulates on the teeth. When not treated, periodontal disease can result in the loss of teeth, gum tissue and bone. While gum disease is not curable, we can treat the condition and keep it under control to protect your oral health. Our dentist can provide periodontal maintenance to help treat periodontal disease and prevent the serious effects of the condition.
Periodontal maintenance involves visiting our office on a regular basis, typically once every three months, for a professional cleaning. These treatments include thorough cleanings both above and below the gum line, removing plaque, tartar (hardened plaque, also called dental calculus), and bacteria to prevent the condition from worsening. Periodontal maintenance is recommended every three months because when biofilm is not removed, the periodontal bacteria begin to flourish within three to 12 weeks. By providing a cleaning at 12 weeks (three months), we are able to remove these bacteria and keep the condition under control. To learn more about periodontal maintenance and how we can treat gum disease, we welcome you to call or visit our office today.

Emergency Dental Care
Dental emergencies are scary and inconvenient. Dr. Rice is trained in extractions, root canal treatments, and other emergency dental techniques.
Super staff and Dr. Rice did an amazing job! I've been slowly losing teeth for years now and feel like a new person with my new partials. Thank you so much!

I highly recommend Joshua Rice. I had a dental emergency. I cracked a molar while eating dinner. The next morning I looked for a dentist. They were able to fit me in within a couple of hours. Everyone in the office is really nice. Dr Joshua Rice was great. He took care of my emergency, quickly and he was gentle.

I hadn't been to the dentist in a while and was nervous to go. Dr. Rice and his staff was calming, kind and attentive. They didn't gouge me for a dental plan, and I was very happy with the service I received. They gave me a dental plan I understood, were informative, and I'm happy I found my dentist! Very satisfied!

Best Dental office ever. The people are so nice. I actually look forward to my routine cleanings just to see the staff. I have been a client for several years and have never been treated bad.

Friendly, quick, and (never thought I would say this about going to the dentist), but very enjoyable! It was a pleasant surprise watching the NFL network while getting my teeth cleaned. Dr. Rice has a great bedside manner.
