Helps Treat Gum Disease and Gingivitis

Approximately 30 percent of our population has some level of gum disease. Not only does this jeopardize the health of our teeth, gums, and the underlying bone that supports them but also our overall health. There is a direct correlation between inflamed gums and heart disease, diabetes, and other serious conditions.

Gum disease is affected by several factors including diet, genetics, home care, and overall health. If you have this problem, we will need to treat you with a different level of care. Periodically we will need to “deep clean” your gums and the pocket areas around your teeth. This often needs to be done a section at a time and would require local anesthetic for your comfort. A regular monitoring of your gum health and pocket depth measurements allows us to elevate our progress in dealing with this disease in your mouth. We would normally have you back into our office every 3 to 4 months to keep this disease process under control.

If you have dental insurance they may or may not pay for these treatments as they would for preventive cleanings. However, this does not mean the treatments are not critically necessary to maintain your health. Don’t rely on your insurance to determine what is best for you. They don’t care. They are only there for the money and your employer’s contract determines what benefits will be paid.
