Periodontal Disease Solutions in Englewood
You may be surprised to know that a large percentage of Americans have gum disease. In its earlier stages, gum disease can be treated effectively. Once it has progressed to periodontal disease, however, it becomes much harder to treat.
If gum disease treatment hasn’t been implemented, the problems associated with periodontal disease can be rather unpleasant–including gum recession, loose teeth or even having a tooth fall out.
We offer several gum disease treatment procedures for patients in Dayton and Brookville as well.
Because it is underdiagnosed, periodontal disease is prevalent–especially when your dentist uses a visual examination only.
OralDNA salivary diagnostic testing, coupled with a visual examination, helps our doctors find and begin to treat a periodontal infection very early. OralDNA is also helpful with patients who may have a genetic predisposition to developing periodontal disease.
OralDNA is also one of the top-of-the-line dental technology treatments we offer to our patients at our Englewood office, because we are dedicated to making sure your oral health is all it can be.
We also do non-surgical periodontal treatment in conjunction with our gum disease treatment. This can dramatically improve our patient’s health.
The best gum disease treatment is prevention, which includes:
- The basics: brushing and flossing at least twice per day
- Seeing your dentist regularly to keep your mouth clean, healthy and looking great.
- Eating the right foods
- Getting enough rest
- Exercising regularly
- No alcohol or tobacco
A healthy lifestyle affects your overall health, including your oral health.
