Get More Information on Improving Your Gums
So gum disease treatment is very important to your body. There’s normal cleanings that a lot of people get on a regular basis every four to six months, but sometimes if it runs in your family, or if you haven’t been to the dentist in a long time, you can develop gum disease. Gum disease is a major contributor to your overall body and health. It creates inflammation in your bone and in your tissue, that inflammation gets into your body, and you’re four times, five times more likely to have a heart attack or stroke by having that inflammation in your body.
One treatment that helps that is some laser treatment that we do. It’s also routine cleanings every three to four months. This is following getting a deep cleaning done.
Our hygienists, they’ve got different tools that make it comfortable for you to get the cleaning done if you’re really anxious or just are afraid of the feeling, and they’ll put some numbing gel, just some gel over there to make it easy for you. We actually have some patients who, not just the gum disease, but they’ve got a lot of work going on in their mouth, and we put them to sleep, IV sedation. They get their deep cleaning done and their fillings fixed, and then they’re just put into a normal path with their hygienist for regular cleanings every four to six months. And our hygienist will do everything she can to help you stay on that right path and maintain it.
