To avoid the time and expense required for complex dental work, early detection is the key. The dentists believe that prevention starts with control of plaque and calculus, the culprits responsible for decay and gum disease. Periodontal disease, or gum disease, is the primary reason for adult tooth loss. This condition often occurs without any obvious symptoms and may lead to other serious health issues. Current research shows a significant link between periodontal disease and conditions like heart disease and stroke.
We will begin with a complete examination of your teeth and gums to determine your current oral health. If we find that you have periodontal disease, we can offer conservative periodontal treatments and save you from a visit to the periodontist. Dr. Hauge and our team will select periodontal treatments to eradicate disease, preserve existing gum and bone structure, repair damaged tissue, and reduce the risk for recurrence.
