Regular dental checkups and periodic exams are very important. Our highly trained and specialized dental hygienists can effectively remove damaging plaque and calculus and clean the area around affected teeth. This will help healthy gums stay healthy and treat infected gums to begin the healing process. They will also give our patients thorough hygiene instructions to keep further periodontal disease under control.
They are wonderful at motivating our patients to maintain healthy gums that lead to a healthy overall physical condition as there is a proven link between gum disease and other health concerns such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease among others.
