Professional Hygiene and Periodontal Disease

Everyone over the age of two should be attending professional hygiene appointment. Our gentle hygienists will inspect your gums for periodontal disease, the leading cause of tooth loss for American adults. The hygienists are specially trained to detect, deter, and treat gum disease. We prefer to help you maintain optimal oral health so that you never have to worry about gum disease. However, if you develop periodontal problems, we're here to help you.

If we find cause for concern, we may recommend that you change your oral healthcare routine or the products you use at home. We may also suggest a deep cleaning, which involves:

  •     Scaling to remove tartar from below the gum line
  •     Root planing to smooth rough root surfaces where plaque builds up
  •     Arestin antibiotic treatment to kill bacterial infection

 Advanced Hygiene for Periodontal Disease

Advanced hygiene gives us another way to care for your body while caring for your mouth. Healthy gums are the first step to complete oral health – and complete oral health can contribute to protecting your long-term physical health. Taking care of periodontal disease is an important first step toward improving total oral wellness.

Estimates show that up to 85% of people have some level of periodontal disease, also known as gum disease. Why? Often, periodontal disease is misdiagnosed or simply ignored. Initial symptoms can be mild, but early detection is the best approach to treatment. We use advanced technology to diagnose and treat periodontal disease before it becomes a major threat to overall health.
