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.
How can you keep your teeth strong and comfortable for life? We stress regular re-care appointments and gum maintenance.
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. We will take time to discuss the success of the current program and will see if other home care options may be of help to you. We welcome your questions and will work with you to satisfy individual needs. We also work with gum specialists when required to ensure you have optimal gum health.
