Periodontal disease, or gum disease, is a degenerative oral condition that destroys your gums and the supporting bone structure of your teeth. Dr. Aaron T. Ward and our team are dedicated to helping you fight gum disease and maintain good oral health. If you notice any symptoms of gum disease, including red or swollen gums, gums that bleed easily, gum recession, or loose teeth, you should seek periodontal care as soon as possible. Your general dentist or a hygienist may also recommend periodontal treatment if they find signs of gum disease during your dental checkup.

Periodontics is the dental specialty focused on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease and other conditions that affect the gums and soft tissues of the mouth. Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is an infection caused by bacteria in plaque. When plaque builds up on the teeth, the bacteria irritate and inflame the gum tissues. If this condition is not treated in the early stage, called gingivitis, it can develop into periodontitis, which is the more advanced stage of gum disease. Gingivitis is characterized by red, tender, bleeding, and swollen gums; periodontitis also involves gum recession and can eventually lead to bone loss and tooth loss. Gingivitis can usually be controlled and even reversed with additional professional cleanings and improved at-home oral care if the condition is diagnosed and treated early; periodontitis, on the other hand, generally requires more involved, frequent treatment. We are pleased to provide high-quality periodontal disease treatment in our Ogden office to return your smile to good health.
There are many different treatments for periodontal disease depending on your circumstances. Please call our office today for your complimentary consultation and customized periodontal disease treatment plan at our Ogden office.
"I visited several dentists before choosing Doctor Ward. I can’t express how happy I am with my decision. I haven’t stopped smiling since I left his office. He was professional and friendly, as was his staff. If I had to undergo this procedure again I would choose Doctor Ward again and again. Thank you Doctor Ward and staff. You have changed my life forever!!!"
"I've been very fortunate in selecting Dr. Ward to do the implant surgery I had been investigating for over a year. I am still going through the process, but I couldn't be happier with what he has done so far. I received a very thorough consultation before having the work done. The process was painless and recovery was a breeze. At my follow-up visits, he takes time to answer all my questions and makes sure that any issues I'm having are resolved. I trust his work and advice completely. His assistants and office staff are very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. I highly recommend Dr. Ward."
