PERIO THERAPY (ADVANCED AND REGULAR HYGIENE VISITS)
Believe it or not, a vast majority of adults and teenagers have some form of periodontal (gum) disease, and most don’t even know it! Gum disease is also called the “silent disease” because, in most cases, the disease must be quite advanced before any symptoms show themselves. At every visit to Dr. Whittle, you will receive a close examination of your gum tissue. If any issues are present, Dr. Whittle will create a customized treatment plan to help you return to optimal periodontal health and to maintain that health for the future. Your treatment may include the gentle removal of bacteria and debris from just beneath the gum line or a more advanced procedure that is performed over several visits. Whatever you need, Dr. Whittle will help ensure your healthy teeth and gums for years to come.
