What is gum disease?

» Periodontal disease is mainly caused by bacteria from plaque (a soft, sticky, colorless deposit that is continually forming on our teeth and gums) and tartar (hardened calcified form of plaque) buildup. This can also be caused by smoking, grinding your teeth, certain medications, and genetics. Gum disease or Gingivitis can be linked to stroke, heart disease, and other serious health issues. Bleeding gums is a sure sign of a problem, please do not ignore this condition.


How often should I change my toothbrush?

» Adults and children should change out their toothbrush every 3 months due to wear and diminished effectiveness. If you have gum disease you should get a new toothbrush every 4-6 weeks. It is also a good idea to get a new one after you have recovered from an illness.


What is a dental implant?

» A metal "post" is surgically placed into the jawbone where the tooth is missing. This post acts as the anchor for a new crown, bridge, or denture.


What are porcelain veneers?

» A veneer is a thin shell made out of high quality ceramic that are custom made and cemented to the front surface of the tooth. Veneers have the look of natural tooth enamel but do not stain easily.


What is a periodontist?

» A periodontist is a specialist who has completed at least 3 years of specialty training in diagnosing, preventing, and treating gum disease.


What is an oral surgeon?

» An oral surgeon has completed at least 4 years of a surgical hospital residency. They treat and diagnose defects, injuries, and diseases of the mouth, jaw, teeth, neck and gums.
