Get a great healthy smile
So, people come to the dentist and they want healthy teeth and healthy gums. Over the years, bacterial toxins have accumulated around the teeth. And the bone hates those toxins, and so it actually recedes. It’s almost like it’s disintegrating trying to avoid those toxins. Well, the problem is, that’s the bone that holds your teeth in place. And if it continues to regress, you actually can end up losing teeth. But what we’re able to do is we’re able to go in and remove those bacterial toxins. We do an infection control therapy. The technical term is scaling and root cleaning, and we’re able to get a lot of those bacterial toxins out. And, unfortunately, we can’t grow bone back. Once the bone is gone, it’s gone. What we can do is we can really arrest the progression of that disease. We can slow it down and hold onto those teeth as long as possible. Our hygienists also really work well with the patients to help explain how to clean the teeth, how often to clean the teeth, and that way we’re able to work together with the patient as a team to hold onto their teeth for as long as possible.
