Periodontal Disease, Periodontal Treatment
Using a simple test, we can detect early signs of periodontal disease and provide treatment which is critical to prevent further problems. Even though this procedure for early detection is simple, many people have never had it done.
The goal at the Island Center for Dental Excellence is to have our patients enjoy the benefits of a healthy mouth, with pockets no deeper than 3 mm and no bleeding upon probing. The mantra in Dr. Schulze's office is "Zero Tolerance for Bleeding" and it is becoming increasingly evident through research that this critical goal is not only good for your oral health but also for your general health as well.
Periodontal disease is the number one cause of tooth loss today! Anyone at any age is susceptible to gum disease. Routine and regular visits to the dentist are the best ways of detecting and treating gum disease during the early stages. Gum disease will not go away by itself or with intense brushing. The only way to control the disease is with professional cleanings that remove plaque under the gums.
Dr. Schulze takes the treatment of periodontal disease very seriously. Because there is a direct link between your dental health and your medical health, we at the Island Center for Dental Excellence perform a thorough periodontal examination on all new patients and we also screen our recall patients at regular intervals. Once we have completed the assessment we are then able to determine what type of cleaning is necessary for your mouth. Yes, there are different types of cleanings that the hygienists and Dr. Schulze will recommend for you based on your individual dental condition.
