Gum Disease and Periodontal Care
Maintaining healthy gums is especially important. Proper periodontal maintenance can help you keep your gums healthy and strong. Many people suffer from serious gum infections only because they didn't realize they had an infection in the gums early on, so it goes untreated, though periodontal care by our dental professionals could have easily detected the infection. Regular dental checkups and proper examination along with maintenance and care of your gums can help you keep your gums healthy and strong and prevent an infection. If you are curious about how you can avoid periodontal infections or if you believe you may be suffering from one please visit our office at Smile Craft Dental where we can provide you with effective solutions to keep your gums free from infections or treat an existing infection successfully.
Prevents Tooth Loss
Proper and timely maintenance of your teeth and gums not only helps to protect your teeth and gums but also preserves your natural smile. When a gum infection spreads it becomes exceedingly difficult to control the infection without extracting teeth to clean the area thoroughly to prevent further spread. A gum infection not only compromises the health of your teeth but also puts the other parts of your mouth in jeopardy, and can even affect your overall health. Instead of risking the integrity of your teeth and allowing the infection to spread, it is better to maintain healthy gums with periodontal care from us.
When our dental professionals examine your mouth thoroughly at your visit, we look for early signs of gum infections. If found, treatment can begin immediately, right at the start of a problem, thus preventing the infection from spreading further. It is much easier to overcome an infection during its early state rather than allowing it to spread and create bigger problems.
Prevents Jaw Degeneration
When a gum infection becomes severe, it can ruin the integrity of the root of your tooth. If that happens, sometimes our dental professionals are left with no alternative other than extracting the affected teeth, cleaning the area, controlling the infection, and preparing you for a dental implant. The time required for healing after an extraction and treatment could eventually result in jaw degeneration because treating the gum infection successfully can be a lengthy process.
Jaw degeneration can affect the function of your mouth as well as the overall appearance of your face. Taking the time to care for your teeth and gums, as well as scheduling the proper periodontal care with our office can help you maintain your gums and keep them healthy.
Fewer Dental Problems
