Your dental health depends on regular cleanings. We recommend at least two cleanings per year. Every time you visit our dental hygienist, our hygienist will examine and measure your gums and supporting tissues around your teeth. We use specialized instruments to gently remove deposits from your teeth’s surfaces. Additionally, we will give you personalized tips for home care.

Gum Disease Treatments

Plaque (a sticky form of bacteria that forms on the teeth) is the cause of gum disease. Plaque will continue to build up and create toxins if it is not removed (by flossing, brushing, and having regular dental checkups). In periodontal disease, small pockets separate the gums from the teeth just below the gum line. Periodontitis and gingivitis are the two stages of periodontal disease.

 

  • Gum disease begins with gingivitis, when the gums become red, swollen, and bleed easily. The disease is treatable and can usually be eliminated with daily brushing and flossing.
  •  
  • Untreated periodontitis can lead to serious and irreversible damage to the gums and bone that support the teeth. When gums are infected with periodontitis, teeth can become loose, fall out, or be removed by a dentist.

Comprehensive evaluation / Oral examination

In an oral examination, the mouth, head, and neck are visually examined to detect any abnormalities. Our dentists use radiographs to detect cavities, problems with existing dental restorations, gum or bone recess
