At Wyandotte Family Dental, we aim to prevent and treat periodontal (gum) disease so that you can have a healthy and beautiful smile for life. Periodontal disease is an inflammatory disease that affects the soft and hard structures that support the teeth. Supporting bone can be lost, the teeth loosen, and eventually be lost, and it has also been linked to:
- High blood pressure
- Heart disease
- Pregnancy complications
Our dentists and hygienists work with you to prevent or treat periodontal disease and return you to optimal oral health. During your appointment, Dr. Cleereman and Dr. Veizaj can help you determine which treatment is right for you. Our periodontal treatments include scaling and root planing (deep cleanings) and Perio Protect®.
Perio Protect is a customizable treatment that involves using trays and prescribed solutions to manage biofilm, where periodontal bacteria reside. Perio Protect can help improve the health of your smile and may even provide you with whiter teeth and fresher breath. The Perio Protect Method™ is a conservative and effective treatment for some people who have gum disease.
We invite you to contact our office soon if you would like to learn more about Perio Protect, scaling and root planing, or about any of your treatment options for gum disease in Wyandotte, Michigan.
