Oral Hygiene Therapy
Gone are the days of a simple “cleaning”. Modern day dental hygiene therapy involves specific treatment that is prescribed after a thorough exam and diagnosis of the presence/absence and severity of gum disease. If gum disease is diagnosed, we will prescribe care that is individualized to eliminate the offending bacteria and restore beautiful and healthy gums.
Research has demonstrated that gum disease can influence negative changes in other parts of your body. Some of these changes can increase your likelihood of developing:
- Heart disease
- Premature birth
- Low birth-weight babies
- Certain forms of cancer
Research on the impact of gum disease on other aspects of overall health are ongoing.Request An Appointment
