Periodontal Therapy Returns Perfection to Your Smile
Return health to your gums with periodontal therapy from Ridgefield Perfect Smile Center…
Did you know the number one reason that American adults lose their teeth is gum disease? At Ridgefield Perfect Smile Center, we know that healthy gums are the foundation for a healthy mouth. With our periodontal therapy, we can rid your gingiva of dangerous bacteria and free your enamel from tartar. We recommend periodontal therapy for all gum disease cases. Periodontal therapy ensures your gum health--and your overall health, too.
More than 75% of American adults suffer from some form of gum disease. Some factors increase the risk of gum disease and the need for periodontal therapy, including:
- Smoking or chewing tobacco products
- Medications such as steroids and cancer therapies
- Diabetes and other systemic health problems
- Crooked teeth
- Problematic fillings and tooth decay
- Oral contraceptives
At Ridgefield Perfect Smile Center we want to ensure your gum health. Oral bacteria can not only infect your teeth and inflame your gums, but can also enter your bloodstream. Restoring the health of your gums could reduce your risk for heart attacks and strokes. You may need periodontal therapy if you are experiencing any of these warning signs:
- Bleeding, red, or swollen gums
- Persistent bad breath
- Shifting teeth
- Loosening dentures or partials
- Any changes in your bite
To ensure the comfort and safety of our patients, our dental professionals at Ridgefield Perfect Smile Center use lasers for periodontal therapy. With our soft-tissue laser, we can provide our patients from Ridgefield and beyond with modern treatment for periodontal disease. Using our soft-tissue laser, periodontal therapy is more comfortable and less invasive. During your procedure, we’ll treat just the parts of your smile that need to be treated, ensuring that your procedure is as conservative and efficient as possible. Contact us today to learn more about the benefits of non-surgical periodontal care with a soft-tissue laser. With laser periodontal therapy, patients can expect very little bleeding and discomfort. Sutures are unnecessary, and recovery time is much shorter. The benefits of periodontal therapy are numerous--and if you have gum disease, we can help.
