Our team strives to prevent and treat gum (or periodontal) disease. Dr. John M. Colbert, DMD makes the treatment and prevention of this disease a priority because it can lead to other problems, like heart disease and stroke. For these reasons, we offer several treatments—like scaling and root planning—to stop gum disease in its earliest stages. Our dentist invites you to contact us today if you would like more information about your treatment options for gum disease in Springfield, Illinois.
