Getting a checkup and cleaning on a regular basis not only helps keep your mouth healthy, it saves you money, too.

Discuss maintenance and cleanings with us today, and we will get you on the path to a healthier you.
Also known as “Deep Cleanings” or “Scaling and Root Planing (SRP),” periodontal therapy is one of the most important steps you’ll take if you’ve been diagnosed with gum disease. This cleaning, completed along with periodontal maintenance on a regular basis (every 3 months), will allow you the opportunity to regain healthier gums and hopefully stop any bone loss that may have already started. Gum disease is serious and can be prevented, but if left untreated it can pass along bacteria into your bloodstream which may affect your heart and arteries. If your gums have been hurting or bleed when you brush, now is the time to schedule a periodontal exam.
