Did you know that gum disease is the most common disease plaguing American adults? Over 80% of the population is estimated to be suffering from gum disease. During your checkup, we’ll investigate the health of your gums, and if you’re suffering from gum disease, we’ll devise an individual treatment plan that includes periodontal therapy.
Periodontal therapy can vary depending on how far your gum disease has progressed, but typically it involves scaling and root planing. These procedures involve deep cleaning the area, then smoothing out the tooth root to prevent irritants and toxins from collecting in the area.
Afterward, we will want to check in with you regularly to make sure your gums are healing nicely and staying healthy. Regular flossing, brushing, and rinsing with mouthwash will help keep gum disease at bay. Don’t lose your teeth and your health to this serious problem.
