A contractor will tell you the house is only as good as the foundation it is built upon. This premise is also true in dentistry.
Excellent gingival health gives you strong bone to hold your teeth in place and creates an environment which helps to prevent decay. Healthy gums also make any work the dentist needs to perform more predictable.
Gentle Family Dentistry takes pride in the fact our hygiene department performs yearly periodontal disease assessments so we can catch disease early providing you with the best long term outcome. With accurate measurements and appropriate xrays our hygienists will properly diagnose your current condition and then outline a plan of treatment appropriate for you.
