Periodontics and Hygiene

Did you know that healthy gum are not just important for a beautiful smile but also for a healthy you?  We will help you prevent periodontal disease and maintain healthy gums for a happier and healthier you.

Taking care of your gums is just as important as taking care of your teeth. Because your teeth need a solid, healthy foundation to support them, periodontal care is of utmost importance!

Neglecting your gums could cause you to develop what is often referred to as “gum disease”. This periodontal disease has a number of symptoms, including spaces between teeth, tooth sensitivity, chronic bad breath, and swollen, puffy and bleeding gums. If left untreated, gum disease could result in your teeth loosening or even falling out.  In addition,  chronic  inflammation from gum disease has been associated with systemic diseases such as heart disease and arthritis.

We encourage our patients to come in regularly for checkups and cleanings. These appointments allow us to monitor your oral health. Our hygiene services provide you with guidance on how to keep your gums and teeth healthy, and check your teeth for cavities and dental illnesses.
