Periodontal disease is one of the most common afflictions of man. Research says that there’s 70 percent of the adult population has some form of periodontal disease. The way you control that is by plaque control. The plaque is what causes the tartar to form, and if you’re able to keep the plaque disrupted daily, have any tartar removed by us every four to six months, puts the gums in an environment where they can be healthy and support the teeth solidly.
It’s always better to prevent something from happening than to fix it after it already has. That’s really one of the most important reasons to have regular checkups and cleanings, is because as long as the teeth are healthy, fluoride treatments help prevent dental decay, we’re able to maybe find things while it’s small, before it gets bad and relatively expensive to fix. Preventive dentistry is really a key thing.
So many of us are – if it’s not broke, don’t fix it, and we wait until we have a problem. It’s kind of a bad mindset to have, and I’m kind of guilty of that myself, but to be able to have routine care and to make sure that you’re not having a problem is really the best care that you can have.
- Provide the highest-level, most comfortable care possible
- Help you smile with more confidence and pride wherever you go
- Make sedation options available to you, including laughing gas and sedation in pill form
- Give you an increased sense of self-worth
