Maintaining healthy gums is vital in preserving beautiful teeth and, in general, good overall physical health. Periodontal disease is a silent and destructive disease of the supporting structures of the teeth including the gums, jawbone and periodontal ligaments. At least 80 percent of adults who have periodontal disease experience bleeding gums and bad breath among other possible symptoms. Periodontal disease is linked to many other diseases that affect the body, including coronary artery disease, diabetes and a weakened immune system.
If we diagnose gum disease, it is extremely important to eradicate the infection and prevent tooth loss, damage to surrounding structures, and the compromise of your overall health. Dr. Wells and his knowledgeable dental staff will educate you about gum disease and effective methods of prevention that you can utilize at home to keep your smile healthy and beautiful.
Treating periodontal disease seems to be a procedure that causes so much confusion for patients in trying to understand the difference between “just a cleaning” and Scaling and Root Planing and the need and reason for this procedure.
Scaling and Root Planing is done to remove tartar and hard crusty calculus, that is loaded with bacteria, around and BELOW the gum line where there is a pocket formed around the tooth greater than 4mm. A professional dental cleaning or prophy removes only the soft sticky plaque that is above the gum line.
Digital X-rays offer the advantage of an 80 percent reduction in radiation. There is no need for film or processing chemicals. Images are produced almost instantaneously and we have the ability to use color contrast and other valuable tools on the image. The speed in which a dentist gets to see the image is about three seconds.
Dental X-rays are an important tool in the diagnosis and treatment of dental problems. They do not, however, replace the need for a visual examination of the head, neck, TMJ and oral cavity. It is only with a combination of both the X-ray and the visual examination that the dentist can best treat his or her patients.
