Periodontal Therapy An Overview
Gum disease affects over 75% of adult patients and remains a leading cause of tooth loss. Preventable and treatable, periodontal disease is something that we screen for during all routine dental visits at Ridgetop Dental in Northern VA. Dr. Datta Malyavantham and his associates emphasize the importance of maintaining healthy gums and provide personalized care to address your unique lifestyle habits and risk factors for gum disease.
Most patients do not realize that the gums are the support structure for the teeth- and healthy gums play an important role in maintaining both the integrity of your smile and the prevention of other health concerns.
Studies have shown the role that the “mouth-body” connection plays in the development and severity of systemic and cardiovascular related disease. It is also important for patients with existing disease to monitor gum health as certain medications, treatments and disease itself can affect the ability to keep the gums in optimal condition.
Dr. Datta and our staff will screen for gum disease and offer periodontal therapy to address the stages and symptoms of gum disease. Restoring healthy gums will support your long term oral health and physical well being.
We will evaluate your gum health during routine visits and make recommendations for appropriate treatment as necessary. In most cases, regular visits with us will greatly reduce your risk for advanced gum disease, allowing us to monitor your gum health twice a year and spot developing disease early on for prompt treatment.
