Periodontal/ Gum Tissue Health
Our Standard of Care
The American Dental Association has estimated that 80% of American adults have periodontal disease, including gingivitis. According to the American Academy of Periodontology, more than a third of Americans over the age of thirty have periodontitis. In addition, recent research has offered a growing amount of compelling evidence and data showing direct links between periodontal health and systemic health. These links include the inflammatory effects of periodontal disease correlating with great risks of heart attack, stroke, diabetes, lower birth weight babies, and pre-mature births.
It is the philosophy of our office to be patient centered, and it is our mission to diagnose and treat periodontal disease, including gingivitis. The methodology to accomplish this is conservative, non-surgical treatment with active patient involvement. We use a systematic approach to patient care, and the model we have created is based on our standard of care. Since we use it daily on every patient, our model is continually tested and evaluated based on predictions of treatment outcome, as well as direct observations of its effectiveness.
