Studies show that more than half of the adult population in the United States is affected by gum disease and gingivitis, and gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss among adults. At Garcia Family Dental, we utilize state-of-the-art technology and methods to halt the onset and progress of periodontal disease to help patients maintain healthy and beautiful smiles. With our comprehensive program of preventive care and Seymour gum therapy, we can protect your gums and help you enjoy the benefits of optimal oral health.
Your gums play the important role of supporting and protecting your teeth. By brushing, flossing and visiting our office for routine checkups and periodic teeth cleanings, you are taking important steps towards preventing gum disease. Gum disease occurs when plaque is allowed to accumulate below the gum line, infecting and inflaming the tissues supporting the teeth. Gingivitis is the initial phase of gum disease, and may go unnoticed, as it does not present any painful symptoms. To accurately diagnose all conditions that are potentially harmful to your oral health, we perform a comprehensive examination, with the use of advanced digital radiography, as needed. If gingivitis is detected early on, we may recommend Seymour gum therapy that involves deeper cleanings, which include scaling and root planing. With these procedures we can remove any plaque buildup from underneath the gums and smooth the root surfaces of the teeth to prevent more plaque from accumulating there. At Garcia Family Dental we are committed to providing the most precise and gentle care, and will keep you informed and at ease throughout treatment. We will also recommend any needed improvements to your oral hygiene regimen and visiting us more frequently for teeth cleanings. Treating gingivitis before it progresses to a more advanced stage of periodontal disease, allows us to deliver the more straightforward and effective course of care.
With Seymour gum therapy, we can reverse gingivitis and keep your mouth healthy. At Garcia Family Dental, we utilize the most advanced methods to prevent, diagnose and treat gum disease. To learn more about gingivitis or to schedule an appointment, call today.
