Healthy Gums = Happy Life!
Your teeth are just part of the story. Gum health is essential!
Our prevention-first approach to periodontal disease
The best offense is a good defense! At Bowles Dental, we are here to help you prevent gum disease through regular exams and thorough cleanings. Our approach emphasizes lifelong dental health and whole-body wellness.
Even if it’s been years since you saw a dentist and are worried that you might have gum disease, take a deep breath. We’ll assess your gum health and create a treatment plan using the most modern and high-tech gum disease treatments.
Bowles Dental does gum disease therapy differently. We take great pride in our high-tech and comfortable treatment options.
Gum Disease Treatments
- Deep cleanings – A deep cleaning goes above and beyond what you get during a standard cleaning. We’ll remove bacterial buildup from above the gum line to reduce gum inflammation and to prevent the spread of gum disease.
- ARESTIN – Microspheres containing a powerful antibiotic can be used to kill the bacteria that cause gum disease. Often used in conjunction with a deep cleaning treatment.
Chad Bowles, DDS, PA
“Gum disease treatments have come such a long way in recent years. Not only can we do more than ever before to prevent gum disease, but we can cure it without invasive surgery. There’s never been a better time to take control of your periodontal health.”
Gum Disease & Your Health
Gum disease is caused by bacteria that inflame and infect the gum tissue in your mouth. Preventing gum disease starts with eating a diet that’s low in refined sugar, brushing/flossing daily, and keeping up with your regular dental exams and checkups. Early detection is key and left untreated, gum disease can affect your health in many ways:
- Gum disease is the #1 leading cause of preventable tooth loss in adults.
- Advanced periodontitis near a dental implant can lead to implant failure.
- Diabetic complications, strokes, and heart disease are linked to periodontal disease.
Your First Visit
Many patients who visit Bowles Dental have questions about their gums. Your first visit includes a full set of x-rays, a thorough exam, cleaning, and time to speak with your perio dentist (expect to spend about 90 minutes at our office).
We’ll review your x-rays, talk about any signs of periodontal disease, and discuss next steps.
We’re here to help. We don’t care how long it’s been since you saw a gum disease dentist last, we’re glad you came to see us!
