The bacteria that cause periodontal (gum) disease and tooth decay are constantly present in our mouths. Home care is our first defense against this onslaught. However, brushing and flossing aren’t enough. That’s why we recommend a minimum of two visits each year to our office.
We offer many services that make your visit more comfortable and can help you keep your teeth healthy for life. As a comprehensive dental practice with specialized training, we can give you the care you deserve.
Periodontal Disease Treatment
Our hygienists are skilled in controlling periodontal disease. Because it’s the leading cause of tooth loss in adults, we are diligent in our approach to making sure periodontal disease doesn’t destroy your smile. If you’ve noticed bleeding while brushing or flossing, you are experiencing the early stages of the disease. Please call our office and set up an appointment. We have many advanced treatments that can keep the disease from ruining your smile.
Please note: Periodontal disease may significantly impact pregnant women or people with diabetes or cardiovascular disease. Individuals with periodontal disease may have significantly increased risk for heart diseases and stroke. Women with periodontitis may have increased risk for delivering pre-term, low birth weight babies. Preliminary evidence suggests that periodontal infections may also be associated with lung disease and other remote site infections.
