Fight Gum Disease with Periodontal Therapy from Carlisle Family & Cosmetic Dentistry
Gum disease is a serious – and common – oral health problem, affecting by some estimates 80% of American adults and contributing to such complications as tooth loss, heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. That’s why it’s so imperative that we provide periodontal therapy for gum disease at Carlisle Family and Cosmetic Dentistry – we’re committed to giving you excellent oral healthcare, and fighting gum disease plays a big role in your overall health.
If caught early enough, we can reverse the effects of gum disease with non-surgical periodontal therapy. This typically involves scaling and root planing. We deep clean the infected soft tissues, removing gum disease-causing bacteria and toxins, and then modify the tooth roots to make it harder for these irritants to take hold.
With routine general family dental care from Carlisle Family and Cosmetic Dentistry that includes dental cleanings and exams, you can avoid gum disease going forward. Dr. Neslund and our staff can educate you on the best practices for home dental healthcare to help you keep your gums healthy and disease-free. Once you’ve had periodontal therapy at our office, maintaining a thorough home oral healthcare routine is of utmost importance, and we’ll want to check in with you regularly to defend against future problems with infection.
If your gums appear irritated or bleed easily, contact Carlisle Family and Cosmetic Dentistry immediately for an appointment. Located in Carlisle, PA, we regularly see patients from Camp Hill, Mechanicsburg, Boiling Springs, Shippensburg and surrounding Pennsylvania communities.
