Healthy Gums For A Healthy Life
Restore Your Overall Health With Dr. Jeremy Jones And Periodontics In Fishers, Indiana.
An American EpidemicThe ever increasing presence of periodontal disease has risen to reach an epidemic level in America. Studies by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicate that nearly half of American adults suffer with some form of gum disease, with statistics suggesting that 70 percent of Americans over the age of 65 are afflicted with the disease. Gum disease not only can lead to bone and tooth loss, but it has also been shown to increase your risk for other serious health conditions like diabetes, heart disease, and some forms of cancer. It is vital that your dentist provide periodontal services to restore the health of your gums and ultimately help to improve your overall health.
Periodontics in Fishers, INAt Dentistry Of Fishers, Dr. Jones provides a wide range of periodontal procedures to keep your gums healthy and to stop the progression of gum disease. Periodontal treatments include:
- Periodontal Maintenance – An ongoing hygiene maintenance program for those suffering from gum disease, periodontal maintenance cleanings are designed to control the progression of periodontal disease and to prevent further bone loss.
- Scaling and Root Planing – This is a special deep cleaning where all tartar and plaque deposits are removed from above and below the gum line and the roots of your teeth are smoothed to promote reattachment of healthy gum tissue and reduce periodontal pocket depths. Scaling and root planing is meant to stop the progression of gum disease and help eliminate active infection in your mouth.
- Bone Grafting – We can replace bone tissue in areas of bone loss, restore facial structure, and prepare for future dental implants with our bone grafting techniques.
