Solve big problems early
We have a lot of patients that come and find us, and it’s been years, sometimes even decades since they’ve actually seen a dentist. If you can imagine how much buildup develops under your car driving through the mud, the rain, and never putting it through a carwash, the teeth are seeing that every day. And, so, sometimes we will remove a lot of that bacterial, biofilm and get the gums back to a healthy situation. One of the biggest things that people don’t realize is the surface of our mouth is actually about the size of our palm. And if you’re noticing bleeding, and just bad breath, halitosis, some other issues that just don’t seem right, if that kind of wound was somewhere else on your body, on your leg or on your knee, you would actually seek help. Gum disease doesn’t hurt until it becomes a very bad situation. I prefer to try to get it early enough, and not let it become a chronic situation. And that way we can actually give you the best chance for holding onto your teeth and not letting those teeth move or get lost due to the amount of bone loss.
