Although great strides have been made in preventing tooth decay with the advent of fluoridated water, tooth loss due to gum disease is still very common.
During your comprehensive new patient examination visit, we will do a thorough gum and bone exam. We’ll discuss the various factors associated with gum disease, and will outline a customized treatment plan to help you achieve healthy gums and bone.
Although periodontal disease is irreversible, we have many nonsurgical treatment options that provide remarkable results.
Our hygienist will demonstrate techniques for removing plaque from all surfaces of your teeth.
After treatment with the hygienist, on every subsequent visit we will re-evaluate your condition. If your condition does not improve, surgery may be required.
