Periodontal Health


Periodontal Disease DiagramOne of the best ways to keep your gums from bleeding when you come in for a cleaning is to floss regularly. Brushing your teeth before or after flossing is less important than whether you floss or not.

Of course, impressing us with gums that don't bleed isn't really the point. Bleeding can indicate a need for improved gum maintenance and oral health habits.

Regular Periodontal Checkups Save Lives


Have you been diagnosed with periodontal disease? In addition to your regular dental checkups, it is a good idea for you to also have a yearly periodontal check-up. Once periodontal disease has progressed, it is often a matter of regular maintenance visits to help keep the disease in check.

Annual exams should include periodontal charting and comprehensive x-rays to monitor any bone loss that might have occurred. If you aren't sure whether you have gum disease, schedule your check-up today and let us evaluate your gum and bone health.
