It’s important to have a regular oral hygiene check-up to avoid periodontal disease. Left unchecked, periodontal disease can result in serious health consequences including increased risk of cardiovascular disease, stroke, heart attacks and diabetes.
Cosmetic Dental’s experienced and qualified hygienists are able to provide you with tailored recommendations on how to best care for your gums, prevent tooth decay and maintain optimal oral hygiene.
Our hygienists are skilled at diagnosing periodontal (gum) disease and can tailor a treatment plan including scaling, root planning, antibiotic pocket therapy and re-attachment procedures.
Your visit with the hygienist may include one or more of the following:
- Fluoride treatments
- Preventative aids such as flosses, gels and mouthwash
- One-on-one oral hygiene demonstration and tutoring
- Decay risk assessments
- Quit smoking support
- General oral hygiene advice, support and encouragement
Booking an appointment with Dr. Cueva for a comprehensive periodontal evaluation is essential for your oral health and for your medical health as well. Did you know that untreated gum conditions can lead to heart attack, stroke, and premature births in expectant mothers? In addition, diabetes can be difficult to control with periodontal problems present. Alzheimers Disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and obesity all have been shown to have a strong correlation with periodontal disease.
