A healthy smile starts with prevention
The best way to prevent gum disease is through effective daily brushing and flossing, as well as regular professional examinations. Unfortunately, even with the most diligent at-home habits, some people still can develop some form of periodontal disease. Once this disease starts, professional intervention is necessary to prevent its progress.
At Adams Dental, we offer a whole-person experience that goes beyond your teeth. Our goal is to positively impact your gum and whole-body health by listening to your individual needs and providing customized, integrative care.
What is periodontal disease?
Commonly referred to as gum disease, periodontal disease is an infection of the gums that gradually destroys the bone that supports your teeth. Adults over age 35 lose more teeth to gum disease than from cavities — and 3 out of 4 people are affected at some point in their lives.
Our approach to gum health
Phase 1 Therapy with Scaling and Root Planing
Periodontal disease is accelerated by many factors, like smoking and diabetes. However, it’s mainly caused by the bacteria found in dental plaque. Scaling and root planing, often referred to as “deep cleaning,” is a crucial first step in removing plaque and treating gum disease (gingivitis or early-stage periodontitis).
Oral DNA Testing
Research shows that it‘s not just the presence of bacteria but the amount and kind of bacteria, coupled with an individual’s genetic history, that leads to gum disease. We can test saliva to determine your risk level and customize a plan for more successful outcomes.
Our approach is always customized to meet your individual medical needs. We collaborate with you to formulate your bespoke plan. Our skilled team will consider your whole-body health to deliver detail-oriented periodontal care with exceptional results.
TwinLight® Laser Periodontal Therapy
TwinLight® Periodontal Treatment is a comprehensive and minimally invasive therapy incorporating the power of dentistry’s 2 most effective laser wavelengths to create optimal conditions for healing gum disease.
This revolutionary treatment reshapes and contours gum tissue and bone around your teeth, delivering a transformed smile and healthier gum tissue in just a single appointment.
For advanced periodontal issues, we may recommend surgery to improve your health and smile. From soft tissue grafts to bone grafts and pocket reduction surgery, our team will recommend the right treatment to address your needs.
