To maintain good overall oral health, routine care and regular visits to the dentist are essential. We offer routine and preventative dental services for the whole family. Routine cleanings, X-rays, and exams help keep teeth and gums healthy and prevent cavities and other damage. For children, we offer a full range of preventative care including fluoride treatments and sealants specifically designed to protect developing teeth.
In addition, our doctors treat patients suffering from periodontal disease — otherwise know as gum disease — which can have adverse effects on overall oral health. Caused by bacteria found in plaque, gum disease most often occurs in patients who neglect routine oral care. Common symptoms of gum disease are swollen, red, and bleeding gums or a receding gum line. If left untreated, gum disease can result in tooth loss. We treat gum disease with a deep cleaning below the gum line to remove plaque and calculus deposits that lead to bacterial growth and bone loss. Depending on the stage and severity of gum disease, further treatment may be required.
