Prevention is the most important aspect related to your family’s oral health and wellness. At Inglewood Family Dental, we offer SE Calgary Periodontal Care to protect the health of your gums.
Periodontal Care includes regular visits at our SE Calgary Dental Office in conjunction with diligent home care. Dr. Arash Ravanbakhsh and the Inglewood Family Dental Team provide detailed instruction regarding brushing and flossing as well as dental examinations and professional cleanings. When you visit Inglewood Family Dental on a regular basis, we can detect problems while they are in their initial stages when it’s less involved and more economical to fix.
Did you know that the health of your entire body is affected by the health of your teeth and gums? Gum disease has been identified as a contributing factor to other serious illnesses, such as stroke, heart attack, and cancer.
When you visit us for your dental examination, Dr. Arash Ravanbakhsh and the Inglewood Family Dental Team will review the proper oral care techniques with you. Proper home care is an essential part of your periodontal care.
Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a condition that affects the health of your gums. The beginning stages of gum disease, known as gingivitis, often begin with no obvious symptoms — only your Inglewood Family Dental Team can identify these subtle changes in the health of your gums.
Signs of gum disease include gums that bleed when you floss or brush your teeth and gums that are swollen. During your Periodontal Examination, the depth of the pockets between your gums and teeth are measured to ensure the health of your gums is not progressing into irreversible stages of periodontal disease. Advanced periodontal disease, called periodontitis is severe, irreversible and often results in patients losing their teeth.
At Inglewood Family Dental Care, we look forward helping you develop a preventive dental care plan that emphasizes periodontal care to keep your teeth healthy and strong, for a lifetime of use.
