Prophy versus Periodontal Maintenance
Scaling and Root Planing
The health of your mouth is intimately connected to your overall health and well being, and that relationship goes both ways, a healthy body and mind requires a healthy mouth. We will help you establish a dental hygiene routine that will keep your smile healthy and bright, and help your overall health as well.
Oral cancer screenings
Oral cancer screenings are an important part of your regularly scheduled dental examination. Early detection is key to prevention and better treatment outcomes, and it may just save your life.
Periodontal Therapy and Maintenance Programs
Periodontal (Latin for "around a tooth") refers to the bone, ligament, and gum tissues that support your teeth. Periodontal disease is the main reason Americans lose their teeth, have bad breath, and bleeding gums. Uncontrolled periodontal disease is a significant risk factor for heart attack and stroke, wreaks havoc with diabetes, and as a source of chronic infection and inflammation plays a part in many chronic systemic health issues. We provide non-surgical periodontal treatment in our office, or we will refer you to a specialist with whom we have an excellent working relationship, as needed. Once your disease is under control we will establish an appropriate maintenance program to keep you healthy.
