Say Yes to Non-Surgical Gum Therapy 12-3-18

Have you been diagnosed with gum disease?

Statistics and the surgeon general say that you are not alone; 80% of the population has gum disease, and if ignored and not treated, it will lead to tooth loss, which is nothing to smile about.

As a holistic dental practice, we are always in search of updated alternative treatments to help save your teeth

Since the entity of periodontal gum disease, or pyorrhea, became a term 30+ years ago, dentists have been and still are treating it with the same methods and getting the same results, not always with success. Now with our alternative gum therapy regimes, we identify the bugs causing the problems, treat them with non-surgical methods, and then reevaluate to see the effectiveness of treatment.

These methods have been so successful for us that we have not had a patient in need of surgical treatment for years and have saved many teeth. Our approach is also more comfortable for our patients and for their budget too! Gum disease has been linked to ailments such as heart disease, premature births, rheumatoid arthritis, Alzheimer’s, and more. Improving the health of your gums can improve your overall health and prevent other medical conditions.
