March 25, 2024

At the office of Associates in Dentistry, our team of professionals are dedicated to helping you maintain healthy gums and a beautiful smile for life. We specialize in providing personalized, state-of-the-art periodontal treatment to prevent the onset and progress of gum disease. Our skilled providers utilize cutting-edge technology and methods to address various periodontal conditions, ensuring your teeth stay securely supported by healthy gums.

Why Healthy Gums Matter

Your teeth and gums have a special relationship; they need each other for optimal health. Unfortunately, many people don't realize that gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss among adults in the United States. In fact, over half of all US adults are affected by this preventable condition. The good news is that maintaining excellent oral hygiene at home and getting regular professional care can keep your gums healthy and strong.

Recognizing the Signs of Gum Disease

If you notice your gums bleed when you brush or floss, that could be a sign of early-stage gum disease known as gingivitis. The good news is, with a deeper cleaning and improved oral care regimen at home, this stage can often be reversed. However, if left untreated, gum disease can progress to more advanced stages which may require more extensive periodontal therapy to prevent further damage and stop the progression of the disease. Whatever your unique needs, rest assured that our office is equipped to provide you with the best solutions in care to help you maintain optimal oral health.
