Periodontal Assessment & Disease Control

Achieving health and well-being is paramount. The separation between whole-body health and oral health exists no more…

During regular dental check-ups your mouth is screened for signs and symptoms of periodontal disease by recording measurements of the gum depths, as a marker of gum health. These depths, along with the presence and absence of bleeding determine the health of the gums.

Periodontal disease is a serious condition in which the underlying bone support is at risk. Periodontal disease is also a well-documented risk factor for conditions like diabetes, stroke, cancers, heart disease and early-term labor.  It is essential to treat periodontal disease to arrest its progression.

 

 

Initial treatment of periodontists is completed through by the removal of disease-causing bacteria, as done with thorough scaling and root planning.If left untreated, periodontitis will lead to the loss of teeth, and other serious health conditions including heart disease.
