Gingivitis and periodontitis, commonly known as gum disease, can cause gum recession and severe damage to your oral health. The trouble with gum disease however, is that it is not easily detected by a patient. For this reason, Dr. Cris Turman provides gingival probing to assess the gum pocket depth, and the health of your gums. Diagnosis can then be more accurate and treatments more suitable and effective.

We invite you to call our office at 701-254-4521 to learn more about the mouth-body connection associated with periodontal disease. As part of our periodontal care at Turman Dental, we gladly provide gum disease treatment in Linton and Wishek, North Dakota. Our dentist and team look forward providing you with care that is as comforting and affordable as possible.
