Periodontal disease is a serious issue that affects many people’s lives. Luckily our experienced Dental Hygienists are capable of treating periodontal disease in our patients. If disease is extensive, then we cooperate with multiple Periodontal Specialists known as Periodontists.
The cleaning of calculus, or tartar, and disruption of bacteria are the major components of treating periodontal disease. However, changes in the patient’s behavior are just as important. Making sure your dental hygiene habits are up to par is critical in the treatment of periodontal disease.
Your teeth are meant to last a lifetime, so it is critical to properly care for them. If you have periodontal disease, don’t feel hopeless. It is a treatable disease, but one that requires the patient to be aware and active with their dental care.
