Our Dental Hygienist, Melissa, showing a patient how good periodontal care is achieved.
If you have been diagnosed with Periodontal Disease, you are not alone.
Did you know that 70% of those 65 years and older have periodontal disease? It is not uncommon in younger patients as well. It is important to note that periodontal disease is usually painless and can go undetected until it’s too late. If left untreated, gum disease can destroy the bone and tissue surrounding the teeth, causing them to become loose. Also, gum disease can result in bad breath and may even change the appearance of your smile. If the disease progresses, you can lose your teeth.
This video shows the seriousness of gum disease and how it can be treated with deep cleaning procedures.
At Asheville Periodontics, we look forward to providing you with the best dental hygiene care for your peridontial disease or periodontial maintenance.
Besides fresh breath, a renewed confidence in your smile, restored oral health and a new sense of health and vitality, you’ll be able to chew your food more easily and enjoy foods you avoided because they were too difficult to eat. With help from Dr. Goggin plus your own dedication to good oral health, you no longer have to accept tooth loss as part of getting older and should keep your teeth for a lifetime.
