Prevent Tooth Loss with Twice-a-Month Periodontal Therapy
Like it or not, one of the first things others notice about you is your smile. Your smile can put people at ease, make you seem more approachable, even make you appear to be more confident. When something about your teeth prevents you from smiling, such as a missing tooth, you can be perceived as unfriendly. Wayne Dental Care is prepared to help you win the battle against tooth loss by providing Supportive Periodontal Therapy that just might help you keep your natural teeth right where they belong.
If you’ve been treated for gum disease, your dentist may have recommended Supportive Periodontal Therapy. This type of cleaning is more involved than a typical cleaning, as it is intended to halt the progression of periodontitis. In addition to removing plaque and tartar, your dental professional will remove bacteria and other signs of infection and finish up by applying an antimicrobial solution beneath the gum line. So why should you go through this multiple times a month? Here are just a few benefits of Supportive Periodontal Therapy:
- You’ll get to keep your teeth! We can’t reverse gum disease, but with periodontal therapy, we can keep it from progressing. Doing so will improve your chances of keeping your teeth as long as possible.
- You’ll enjoy fresh breath! One of the many unpleasant side-effects of gum disease is bad breath that is caused by the bacteria trapped underneath the gum line. Since periodontal therapy removes that bacteria, your breath will stay fresh.
- It can help diagnose and prevent other health problems! The more often we see you, the easier it is for us to notice changes that occur in your mouth. Periodontal therapy allows us to detect abnormalities that may be caused by serious conditions such as oral cancer.
- It will keep your teeth sparkling clean! You know that feeling you get when you leave the dentist? You run your tongue over your teeth, amazed by how clean and slippery they feel. With twice-a-month periodontal therapy, you can enjoy that feeling more often. Twice-a-month, in fact.
