Periodontal disease, sometimes referred to as gum disease or pyorrhea is screened for at every routine examination. The ADA recommends that you see your dentist at least twice a year for a cleaning and a check up. It is possible to not have any warning signs and have periodontal disease. Treating this can vary depending on how farthe condition has progressed.
Some of the signs that could indicate the beginning of a problem are: bad breath or a bad taste, bleeding gums or tenderness when flossing and brushing, overly sensitive teeth to hot or cold and receding gums to name just a few. We will start with an evaluation complete with probing and charting, determine what type of cleaning is best for you and discuss all of your treatment options. Recent medical studies have founds links between gum disease and diabetes, as well as gum disease and heart disease.
It was so nice to see how Dr. Laura and her staff have made the lovely new office their own. Even after the many years I have been a patient, I am always impressed with how their warm, professional manner helps to make the procedures understandable and as pleasant as possible. Two thumbs up!
I had a cavity and crown prep. The doctor and staff did a bang up job. Very professional and relaxing. Holding my tongue down as they stated could lift 600 lbs and my small mouth to work in they earned their money. However, they were great about it and worked diligently to get me through this.
From the entrance to exit, very professional , warm and kind. Waking room was beautiful and very clean well organizeized I had a very short wait. The same for all the back offices. I was met by all with an ENCHANTING SMILE,
