Gum disease is a common condition which can affect up to 70 million American adults each year. When you consider that is close to 50 percent of the adult population in the country, the statistics are worrying. Many of those cases could have been prevented with proper oral hygiene and regular checkups with a dentist. Cost, lack of convenience in care and dental phobias are just some of the reasons patients fail to seek treatment.
Group Health Dental uses a comprehensive approach to periodontal care, with a focus on education and compassionate care. Our team is here to ensure our patients receive dental care that is both effective and long lasting. Education plays a large part in combating the causes of gum disease at Group Health Dental. When you practice excellence in oral hygiene, you will see the benefits in healthier teeth and gums.
Progressive Gum Disease
There are various stages of progression of gum disease. Mild and moderate cases are fairly easy to treat. However, once gum disease progresses to severe periodontitis, treatment options become more complicated and intrusive. Avoiding treatment will only result in your gum disease worsening and posing a significant health risk to your teeth and gums.
