It is our goal at Anderson Aesthetic & Family Dentistry to help you keep your mouth healthy. Decay and gum disease are just two of the most common diseases affecting people today. Seventy-five percent of the population has some form of periodontal disease, but the majority does not realize this. Our licensed hygienist has extensive training in the treatment of periodontal disease. We strive to bring increased oral hygiene care to Anderson, SC to aid in the treatment of gum disease.
Gingivitis is a bacterial infection of the gums that is reversible. However, periodontitis is a gum and bone disease, meaning the infection has spread from the gum into the bone where permanent damage can occur. If detected early, it can be treated and controlled
Our office utilizes an intra-oral camera specifically designed to detect periodontal disease in its earliest stages by detecting inflamed gum tissue.
Periodontal disease is a serious infection that has been linked to heart disease, artery blockages, strokes, diabetes, and other degenerative diseases. Medications can also be a contributing factor in the health of your gums. Every patient has different needs and Dr. Groeber and our hygienist are trained to determine the level of care needed to maintain optimal oral health. They will evaluate you for any signs and symptoms of periodontal disease at each check-up. Some of these symptoms include chronic bad breath, swollen, bleeding gums, and loose teeth. If you notice any of these signs, please contact Dr. Groeber for an evaluation.
Dr. Groeber and his hygienist offer several treatment options for periodontal disease including:
Periodontal maintenance cleanings, to maintain periodontal health after treatment has been performed.
It is important to get regular check-ups and exams to keep your mouth healthy. This aids us in spotting ineffective oral hygiene habits and helping you reverse them through patient education. In addition, it’s vital to begin children early on regular dental checkups to help teach the benefits of good oral hygiene for kids.
Dr. Groeber now offers two new diagnostic tests that give valuable information to your dental clinician for the assessment and treatment of your condition.
These tests are quick and simple, as well as noninvasive and easy to perform. By performing these tests, we can treat and remove the affected diseased tissue and the bacteria found in the gums. It’s our hope that these tests will help us in our aim to bring exemplary oral hygiene practices to Anderson, S.C.
Reasons that these tests may be recommended to you include:
