What Sets Us Apart

He uses of high-resolution equipment because it helps him to spot problems at an early stage. As a result, this leads to more successful outcomes.
Periodontitis & Gingivitis
There are two types of Gum Disease:
- Gingivitis. This is the earliest form of gum disease. Plaque buildup at the gum line causes inflammation and some bleeding near the gums.
- Periodontitis. This occurs when supporting bone and fibers around the teeth are damaged in this second-stage of gum disease, causing bone damage and loss.
Gum Disease Prevention
Visiting the dentist regularly for cleanings and exams is necessary for helping to prevent gum disease. Daily oral hygiene at home, and away, is also a vital part of preventing gum disease. Brushing and flossing will keep teeth clear of bacteria that can lead to plaque build-up and the decay of your teeth.
