We believe the best services are preventive services. We are dedicated and passionate about preventing gum disease, or periodontal disease (the degeneration of your gums that results from bacteria.) Maintaining a regular cleaning schedule and following the dental care recommendations from our experienced and knowledgeable staff can help you steer clear of gum disease. Here are some symptoms that indicate if gum disease affects you:
When left without treatment, the disease can cause even greater damage to your oral health. Greater damage could include your gums beginning to recede, loss of teeth, and even bone loss. Gum disease has also been connected with diabetes, pregnancy complications, heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, and other serious medical conditions.
Another aspect of preventative care includes deep cleaning methods used by our experienced staff in order to halt the progression of gum disease. Deep cleaning methods, such as scaling and root planing, allow healthy gum tissue to regrow and improve your overall oral health.
It is imperative for you to contact us today if you find symptoms of gum disease. The sooner it is treated, the better. Call us today to find out how you can improve your oral health in the Peninsula and how we can help with your preventive dental care.
