Our Pearland Dental Practice Offers Answers
Checkups are a great way for early detection of potential problems. For example, bone loss is a precursor to decay, oral cancer can be detected in early stages, and many people aren’t even aware they have gum disease. At your hygiene appointment, we’ll clean plaque, tartar, and hardened food particles off your teeth. We’ll also make sure your gums are healthy and problem-free.
Oral cancer is deadly, but with our early detection method, we provide an 80% cure rate. Because gum disease has been linked to stroke, heart attack, osteoporosis, and other health risks, we also look for early signs and use detection methods for periodontal issues. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in American adults.
Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss for American adults, in addition to being linked to serious overall health conditions, including stroke, heart attack, and respiratory problems. We may also recommend salivary diagnostic tests that can help us identify certain gum disease causing bacteria that can hide and increase risk of infection. With our team’s skill, we can treat the infection more efficiently using antibiotics and beneficial maintenance.
If gum disease is left untreated, it can escalate and significantly damage your health, so call for an assessment now. We can help you keep your teeth and gums healthy for life!
After your comprehensive evaluation and consultation, we’ll design and present a smile makeover plan for your new smile. We can offer digital imaging for smile previews, as well, so you can see what we can do for your smile before we do it!
An important part of cosmetic dentistry is also functionality. Not only should your smile look fantastic, but it should also maintain comfortable function of your teeth and bite. Ask us about smile analysis and our smile makeovers the next time you come in.
