Discover the Way to Great Gum Health
It’s really important to address gum disease. Gum disease is a real problem. It can lead to tooth loss. It can lead to bone loss. If you lose too much bone and you lose your teeth prematurely, it makes it harder for implants. It’s the foundation for the teeth—we want to keep the foundation intact. In my office, if you have severe gum disease, we offer scaling and root planing. We offer more frequent recall appointments. We encourage the home care. There’s also laser-assisted therapy too, that helps with some patients. It’s a non-surgical treatment. It’s shown to really reduce the inflammation and reduce the amount of bacteria and really help control the gum disease. It’s all about controlling the gum disease and helping keep the attachments intact.
