Gingivitis/Gum Disease Treatment in Longwood, FL
Periodontal (Gum) disease is one of the most common ailments know to man. It has been estimated that over 80% of all adults have periodontal disease in one of it’s stages. It is a chronic, insidious, slow moving infection that causes the destruction of the support tissues around the tooth. At your initial comprehensive examination, you will be checked for this, and our wellness program will be explained to you. We will check to see whether or not the factors that cause this disease are present or not, and if so, to what degree. The secret to a healthy future is removal of 100% of all bacterial plaque from all surfaces of all the teeth at least once in every 24 hour period of time. This requires involvement/participation from the patient. Medical/Dental science is discovering more and more links between gum disease and systemic medical diseases (see the chart on the Hygiene Services page), so getting treatment for gum disease is about more than just keeping your teeth….it can save your life!
