Do you know that over 70% of adults suffer from gum disease? Everyday we hear “but it doesn’t hurt”. That is correct. Gum disease rarely causes pain, especially in the early stages when it can be more easily treated and even reversed. More adult teeth are lost due to gum disease than any other dental disease. Thorough measurements are recorded during the examination. Our dentists and hygiene team help you monitor this condition. Home care techniques are taught and a customized plan is developed to meet your needs.
Now science has discovered a link between gum disease and heart disease as well as several other systemic conditions. Prevention of gum disease makes good sense for optimum health.
