Finding Yourself in Trouble with Gum Disease

  • October 22, 2014

Gum disease affects about 80% of American adults, but only about 65% of Americans see a dentist on a regular basis. We’ll let you do the math to figure out what percentage of Americans who are walking around without a clue that they have a smile-killed infection in their mouth. This common infection can go from something that you wouldn’t even notice to something that will wreck your teeth, but with proper precautions and care, we can minimize the damage and save your smile.

Prevention: Oral Hygiene
The first step in gum disease is prevention. Floss, brushing, and making routine appointments for dental cleanings is the best way to prevent gum disease from occurring in your mouth.

Early Detection: Gingivitis
If an infection does take hold, you probably won’t notice it before your next cleaning. We will see it, remove it during your cleaning, and send you on your way with advice for preventing it.

Advanced Infection: Periodontitis
If gingivitis is not treated, it will progress into periodontitis. To remove this advanced stage of gum disease requires deep cleaning along the root of the tooth, gum restoration, and possibly surgery.

In order to prevent the advance of gum disease, it is important that you maintain oral hygiene, but that you also see us every six months. Contact us today to set up your appointment. Even if we haven’t seen you in a while (or ever), we are happy to see you soon!

    When I originally left a comment I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now every time a comment is added I get four emails with
    the exact same comment. There has to be an easy method
    you are able to remove me from that service? Many thanks!

    At this time it sounds like Movable Type is the preferred blogging platform out
    there right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?
