Putting off going to the dentist may save time and effort, but it can take a detrimental toll on the health of your gums and teeth. Coupled with poor oral routines, health, and diet may put you at risk for periodontal disease.
Our practice can detect early signs of periodontal disease at your routine visit and checkup, such as splinters in your tooth structure under the gum line and inflamed gums.
Redeeming your oral health from periodontal disease is part of our practice’s goal for patient care and painless dentistry to help you avoid continued pain, discomfort, and loss of your teeth and gums.
The precise technique of removing built up residue of plaque and tartar from underneath your gum line aids in the healing process.
We may also look for healthy gum tissue in your mouth and borrow it to heal the affected area of your gum, or use laboratory-generated donor tissue to heal your gums.
Reshaping your gum line may be done as a cosmetic benefit to reduce a “gummy smile” or aid in significantly alleviating pain, discomfort, and loss of your gum line through plastic surgery or our laser treatment.
If it’s been a while since you’ve been to a dentist or visited Hebert Family Dentistry, our practice has a chair open for you! Schedule an appointment with us to secure your spot.
