Periodontal Treatment — Coventry & Vernon

A Comprehensive Approach to Oral Health

Periodontal Treatment Vernon & Coventry

Drs. Hadden and Whidden provide periodontal treatment to their Vernon and Coventry patients who wish to improve their oral health. Gum disease, or periodontitis, affects one in three people and accounts for over seventy percent of adult tooth loss. The disease starts when plaque builds up on teeth. If the plaque remains untreated, it will turn into calculus (tartar) that can only be removed by a dental professional. Plaque and tartar buildup eventually results in gum pockets forming, as well as gums that detach from the teeth. Plaque and bacteria can then reach further into the tissues and cause infection. Infection may lead to pain, but often times there is no pain until the later stages when there is swelling and damage to the gums, tooth roots and bone. The bacteria in these gum pockets produce harmful byproducts that can increase the chances of a heart attack by over fifty percent and a stroke by over thirty percent.

Drs. Hadden and Whidden encourage all of their patients to maintain regular six month cleanings and periodontal screenings. With proper dental hygiene and professional care, we can arrest the progression and even prevent the onset of periodontal disease.
