At East Cedar Dental Inc, we understand the critical role gum health plays in your overall well-being. When you visit our office for an examination, our dedicated hygienists conduct thorough periodontal exams to assess the condition of your gums and overall oral health.

Understanding Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease, commonly known as gum disease or gingivitis, involves inflammation and infection of the gums, often characterized by symptoms such as swollen and red gums, bleeding during brushing and flossing, and persistent bad breath.

The Impact on Overall Health

Untreated periodontal disease can have serious consequences beyond your mouth, including gum recession, tooth loss, and increased risks of heart disease, diabetes, and stroke, emphasizing the interconnectedness of oral and overall health.

Comprehensive Oral Health Assessment

While routine dental examinations typically focus on teeth, our team at East Cedar Dental Inc goes beyond to evaluate your gum health and its potential implications for your overall well-being. If you experience any signs or symptoms of periodontal disease, our experienced team is here to help.

Early Detection and Treatment

Early detection of periodontal disease is key to effective treatment. Our team is trained to identify the signs of periodontal disease, and with proper management, the condition is treatable, ensuring the health and longevity of your smile.
