The Importance of Gum Disease Treatments
One of the most important reasons to keep up with your oral health and continue good hygiene habits is to prevent your mouth from becoming infected with gum disease. However, nearly 75 percent of American adults are affected by this progressive condition due to lack of knowledge, fear of the dentist or improper home care.
With gum therapy or deep cleaning treatments, we can manage the disease and decrease the bacterial load and inflammation. The bacteria will remain as there is no cure, however we manage it with improved and modified home care, more frequent hygiene appointments and adjuncts such as dental laser therapy and local antibiotic administration. Our goal is to catch and perform gum disease treatment before it spreads or develops into advanced periodontitis, an incurable condition that can cause tissue and tooth loss.
Our team has over 70 years of dental experience, making us adept at diagnosing signs of disease and at removing it with effective gum disease treatment. We even offer minimally invasive laser therapy as a gentle form of gum disease treatment.
