Preventing Gum Disease

Periodontal disease develops as a result of plaque and calculus build-up. When left untreated, the disease can inevitably lead to tooth loss. Due to the latest technological advancements in periodontics, Drs. Varlamos and Klein are able to detect an imminent problem before it begins. With the help of digital imaging, a thorough periodontal exam, and bacterial culturing, the doctors can determine your risk category for developing periodontal disease.

Current research suggests that gum disease and infection may be contagious, thus placing your family at risk. We want you to learn what you can do to decrease the likelihood of spreading the bacteria that causes gum disease.

Early detection and treatment is essential. Before you stop kissing your loved ones…schedule a complimentary screening today. If necessary, we will be happy to reserve an appointment for a comprehensive exam.

Excellent oral hygiene as well as regular visits with your dentist and our doctors can prevent periodontal disease. Daily brushing and flossing can keep plaque to a minimum and, in conjunction with professional cleanings 2-4 times a year, can keep your teeth healthy for life.
