Preventing Gum Disease

stk66291corAn estimated 75% of adults have some form of periodontal disease, better known as gum disease. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults 35 and older. A good oral hygiene program and routine professional care is the best way to reduce your risk of gum disease. Dr. Gauthier and the team at Apex Dental focus on preventative dentistry which includes the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease and tooth decay.

Most patient’s dental and periodontal heath can be treated using non-surgical methods such as scaling and root planing where plaque and tartar are gently removed from the teeth and gums. Other patients may require more intensive treatment to rebuild the tissue around teeth and restore teeth that may have begun to decay, broken or that have already been lost.
