At DeVaney Dentistry, we monitor your periodontal health, which directly affects your overall health
Forty-two percent of the American population has some level of periodontal disease, or gum disease. This includes the earliest stage, gingival disease, formerly known as gingivitis. There are several stages of treatment depending on the severity of your level of disease. Important risk factors that can also contribute to the complexity of periodontal disease include:
- Cardiovascular disease
- Genetic history
There is no cure for periodontal disease, only treatment followed by a maintenance protocol. Once diagnosed with periodontal disease, it is extremely important to maintain your maintenance appointments with DeVaney Dentistry.
