Beautiful smile needs a little help from a professional.

If you are lacks in taking care of your oral health you’re going to end up with one of two results, periodontal disease or lost teeth.  The former won’t go away by itself.  The later just falls out.  Your line of defense is prevention – good routine home care and seeing your dentist at least twice a year.  Regular dental checkups and cleanings are essential to preventing periodontal diseases.  And when you don’t engage in good oral health practices the likelihood of disease increases.

In some cases, even with these practices, a certain percentage of patients experience some form of periodontal disease that must be treated.  Depending on the extent of the disease, your dentist may recommend the more aggressive treatment of scaling and root planing.  Scaling is used to remove plaque and tartar beneath the gumline and the root surfaces are planed to allow the gum tissue to heal and reattach to the tooth.

Preventing and treating the disease in the early stages are the best approach to keeping your smile healthy.   We’re a multi-specialty practice that can help you and your family maintain the proper oral health.  We specialize in the right smile.  So call now and get your oral health in order.
