Though periodontal disease can affect your health and life, most people don’t do much to ensure they have healthy teeth.

For this reason, it is important to have regular dental cleanings to make sure your smile is healthy. If you get diagnosed with periodontal disease, we are here to help. We will do a thorough cleaning to remove the tartar and other buildup on your teeth and underneath your gums. There are times when additional treatment is necessary, like antibacterial mouthwash, oral antibiotics, or antibiotics placed on your trouble areas.

Then, you need to improve your dental care at home. You need to brush your teeth at least twice daily and floss daily to keep tartar from building up. You also need to continue to see your dentist regularly to ensure that it does not come back.
