The sooner we detect periodontal disease, the sooner we can begin treatment to help you regain oral health.

While bleeding gums are a common sign of gum disease, many of our patients don’t exhibit symptoms until it’s too late.

Thankfully, our Grand Rapids dentist is experienced in modular periodontal therapy, which detects and treats periodontal disease at the microbiological level.

Unlike other dentists, Dr. Ritzema does more than just remove plaque and tartar. He uses specific diagnostic tools to determine the extent of jawbone and gum infection. Our team also runs DNA tests to identify bacteria and other microorganisms that increase your risk for gum disease. Once we understand what’s happening in your mouth, we are able to develop a customized treatment plan to help you regain dental health.

Recent studies have shown a link between periodontitis and other conditions like diabetes and heart disease. The sooner you ask your dentist about gum disease treatment, the sooner you can improve oral-systemic health.

Dr. Ritzema DDS and his team are dedicated to helping you maintain a beautiful healthy smile. We offer modular periodontal therapy and other preventive dentistry services so you can achieve the best oral health.
