Early detection is the key to avoiding costly and painful dental treatment. Prevention begins with the control of plaque and calculus, the main cause of decay and periodontal disease. In fact, the major cause of tooth loss in adults is periodontal disease, which is known as the silent killer of teeth because most patients feel no symptoms until it’s too late. With regular dental visits, we can treat gum disease at an early stage, before it gets out of hand.
In conjunction with regular brushing and flossing we recommend our patients use a tongue scraper, Xylitol mouth rinse and receive cleanings every six months to assist in achieving and maintain a healthy mouth.
