Prevention improves treatment
Early diagnosis and preventive treatment reduce the impact of gum disease. The earliest signs of swollen or inflamed gums can indicate gingivitis.
Treatment is essential before it evolves into a more serious condition known as periodontitis. The earliest signs of either condition (gingivitis or periodontitis) should be treated so you can avoid tooth loss.
Improve the health of your gums
Your dentist in Deerfield Beach will keep your gums healthy with teeth cleanings and exams the recommended two times per year. Harmful dental plaque is removed above and below your gum line to prevent any symptoms from worsening.
A scaling and root planing will be recommended if a deeper cleaning is necessary. This treatment eliminates plaque build-up beneath your gum tissue.
