Preventing Gum Disease and Tooth Loss
Preventive dentistry is a way of helping you keep a healthy mouth. With preventive dentistry, you can avoid gum diseases, cavities, enamel wear, and other issues. Depending on the condition of your oral hygiene, our experienced dentists will recommend different preventative measures to protect your gums and teeth from extensive damage or periodontal disease. Listed below are some of the preventative dentistry we offer:
Scaling and root planing
The benefits of this form of dentistry are plenty and patients of all ages can realize its goal which is keeping gum disease, cavities, sensitivity, and other common conditions at bay.
Depend on Us for Non-surgical Gum Therapy
Gum disease, unlike other diseases, can be quite painless due to its low progression and it may require aggressive gum therapy. The emphasis of our practice is conservative periodontal therapy. The skilled dentists at our clinic will remove the bacterial plaque and tartar that might be present on and below the gum line.
After an in-depth periodontal screening and examination, we may choose more aggressive therapies aimed at removing or reducing the amounts of bacterial poisons and plaque accumulating below the gum line, (generally cleaning and polishing of teeth is above the gum-line). This involves curettage and root-planning and/or treatment with site-specific administration of medications to the affected gums.
These two procedures are generally done simultaneously, may require local anaesthesia and are skilfully done by our well-trained hygienists. Also, Dr. Sam Lee and his hygiene team will recommend homecare skills that will help you maintain the optimum level of health that you always desired.
