Periodontal (gum) disease affects three out of every four patients. Gums that are red, bleeding, and tender, and bad breath are signs of periodontal disease. During exams, we perform a comprehensive periodontal evaluation to ensure the health of your gums. If periodontal disease is detected, you can be sure that you will receive the highest level of care available. Our hygienists have been extensively trained in the treatment and prevention of periodontal disease. Because your care and comfort is our main priority, our hygienists use advanced techniques and materials to ensure the best result possible.
We take periodontal disease very seriously. It is the number one contributor to tooth loss and has been linked to numerous health conditions, including heart disease, diabetes, and birth defects. Our hygiene department understands the importance of healthy gums and the link they have to a healthy you!
We are able to successfully treat and arrest gum disease now easier than ever before. Using a combination of computerized charting, ultrasonic cleaning techniques and a unique, antibiotic powder called Arestin, our gum disease strategy results in lasting, comfortable periodontal health and improvement.
Our hygienists also provide thorough periodic cleaning and fluoride treatments for children and adults at our practice. Our goal for all patients is to assist them in keeping their mouths as healthy as possible by offering convenient, regularly scheduled cleaning visits.
