Gum Disease Prevention and Treatment
With routine cleanings and a quality at-home oral hygiene routine it is possible to prevent gum disease. The effects of gum disease are also quite easy to reverse when caught early and proper treatment is received.
Our hygienists provide gentle, thorough cleanings that remove the plaque build-up that normal brushing misses. They also offer education and instruction on how to get the maximum benefit from brushing and flossing.
Recent studies have shown an association between gum disease and increased risk of cardiovascular disease, stroke, low birth weight and diabetes. Because gum disease can have an adverse effect to your overall health we strongly suggest getting professional cleanings at least every six months.
