Obviously everyone is aware that good gum health is important, but people still like to focus on teeth. However, the issue is that the gums and the bone are the supporting structures of your teeth, and it's like building a house on a poor foundation. It's important that we understand that we get the gum and the bone healthy, otherwise it's not going to matter how beautiful your teeth are. So here at Boyette Dental, we offer the full range of maintenance options that you would need from regular prophys to deep cleanings. And most importantly, we get you educated on how to take care of those issues at home yourself.
Treating gum disease will:
- Relieve discomfort caused by infected gums
- Help protect you against diabetes and other systemic diseases linked to gum disease
- Restore the healthy, pink appearance of your gums
- Prevent disease from reaching a stage where you could lose teeth
- Eliminate bad breath, bleeding gums, and other unpleasant gum disease symptoms
Dr. McDuffie looks for signs of gum disease during every dental exam, so he can treat it in its early and least damaging stage. If you notice symptoms like bleeding gums, don’t wait until your next exam. Call us ASAP at 813-750-0826.
Defeat Gum Disease With a Deep Cleaning
When bacteria gets in between your teeth and gums, it creates “pockets” where more bacteria collects. Left untreated, gums pull away from your teeth, and the bacteria and inflammatory response begin to affect connective tissue and bone. Before that happens, we can remove bacteria with a two-part treatment called scaling and root planing. Dr. McDuffie will:
- Gently but thoroughly remove bacteria from above and below your gumline
- Smooth your tooth roots, making it difficult for bacteria to accumulate in the tough-to-clean area at your gumline
Prevent Gum Disease With Routine Dental Care
The best way to prevent gum disease is with daily brushing and flossing, supplemented with regular dental cleanings at our office. We recommend visiting us at least every six months for a cleaning. Our Boyette Dental Membership Plan covers two cleanings and exams a year. Plus, you’ll receive a 20 percent discount on our other services – with no insurance hassles like waiting periods or annual benefit limits.
