Gum Disease / Periodontal Disease Screening
Periodontal disease has been linked to our overall health. When you visit us for your maintenance visits we check your gums for any signs of gum disease. In addition, we will examine your teeth for any decay or abnormal wear. If a problem is detected early it can be treated more conservatively and with less expense.
When left untreated, gum disease can lead to heart disease, which is the number one killer of both men and women. Gum disease is also linked to other health issues like arthritis, diabetes (which occurs more in men than women), and stroke.
