Our practice performs comprehensive dentistry, based upon prevention and health. We focus on taking care of your gum tissue and bone, as well as your teeth.
We spotlight the fight against gum disease because it is a silent killer of teeth, as well as the accomplice to other medical conditions. Uncontrolled periodontal disease has been linked to heart disease, premature birth, artheriosclerosis and stroke. Patients who brush and floss regularly can still have gum disease, which is why regular check-ups are so important. With the advent of the latest technologies we have more options available to combat periodontal disease in hopes of avoiding the need for gum surgery.
A healthy mouth requires good oral hygiene. We emphasize prevention of dental disease through patient education and regular preventive visits.
Depending on your oral health, we suggest seeing your dental hygienist for a professional cleaning 2 to 4 times per year to maintain healthy teeth and gums. Our hygienists are well trained, highly skilled professionals well versed in treating all stages of gum disease, from gingivitis to advanced periodontal disease.
