Delaying dental visits may seem like a convenient choice, but it can have serious consequences for your oral health. Neglecting routine dental care, coupled with poor oral hygiene and an unhealthy diet, can increase your risk of developing periodontal disease. At Hebert Family Dentistry, we understand the importance of early detection and prevention. That’s why we perform thorough exams during your routine checkup to detect any signs of periodontal disease, such as inflamed gums and splinters in your tooth structure under the gum line. Don’t put off your dental care any longer – schedule an appointment with us today and take the first step towards optimal oral health.
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.
