Preventing Periodontal Disease
Early Diagnosis is the Most Effective Means of Control
Periodontal (gum) disease is more common than heart disease or even cancer, but because it’s not categorized as “life-threatening,” few people know much about the condition.
The tragedy of this disease is that it can totally devastate your appearance. Left untreated, it will erode your jawbone, ultimately resulting in the loss of teeth.
Germs from periodontal disease can even enter the bloodstream, where they have the potential to cause debilitating effects on your general health.
What is the cause of all this misery? Bacterial plaque.
Routine dental checkups and cleanings are the best way to make sure plaque and periodontal disease don’t take the beauty out of your smile. With periodontal disease, early diagnosis is the most effective means of control.
As our patient, you’ll receive:
- A complete dental periodontal examination
- Nutritional advice
- Inspection for oral cancer
- Personalized bacterial plaque analysis
- Instruction in plaque control
- Complete X-rays
- Scaling and polishing
- A complete preventive program for your specific needs
