Periodontal TherapyAn Overview
Healthy gums are the foundation for a healthy smile. If the picture that we envision is a beautiful and healthy smile, then the gums are the frame of that portrait. Routine dental care is important for the health of your gums and your teeth.
Periodontal disease, or gum disease, has a significant impact on the overall health of the individual. The effects of gum disease have been documented in numerous scientific journals.
Gum Health Affects Overall Health
In our office, all new patient exams include a thorough periodontal health screening. If there are concerns, we have the ability to manage many levels of periodontal infection. A multi-pronged approach works best, combining education, in-office treatments, medications, and enhanced oral hygiene skills.
Our dental hygienists are highly trained and participate in continuing education to stay up to date with the latest techniques in gum disease management. We are committed to improving your oral health and compassionate about providing the personalized care you need to enjoy long-term gum health.
Equally as important to treating active disease is maintaining your current health. This is particularly important after recent restorations, pregnancies, and other changes in your medical health. Preventative care can intercept concerns before they become problems. Early intervention treatment is far more predictable and conservative than treatment for active disease.
