You may think of hygiene visits as just a regular cleaning and exam, but we see them as opportunities to stop periodontal problems in their tracks.
Healthy gums are the first step to complete oral health. Taking care of periodontal problems is how we begin dental treatment with our new patients.
The bacteria that causes periodontal disease also has been linked to serious health problems such as heart diseases, poor circulation and premature and low birth weight babies. When we treat periodontal disease, our concern is for your overall health, not just your teeth.
