Recent studies show that more than half of adults over the age of 35 are already in the early stages of periodontal disease. Additionally, most adults who have periodontal disease are not even aware of their condition.
It is important to think of the periodontal structures (such as bone and gums), like you would think of the foundation supporting a house. Without this solid foundation, the house is much more likely to have problems that need to be corrected.
Working in close conjunction with our highly skilled dentists, our team of Registered Dental Hygienists is here to help guide patients in the prevention, detection, and treatment of periodontal disease.
Patients commonly have questions regarding dental-terms used in this realm of their dental care. This section is designed to help answer those frequently asked questions and clarify the differences in treatment modalities.
