Preventative Dentistry Woodstock GA

Periodontal Therapy, Preventive Treatment

Mary Contact our Hygiene Coordinator

At Towne Lake Family Dentistry, we believe it is always better to diagnose and treat small dental problems before they develop into large ones. In keeping with this philosophy, Drs. Ray H. Morgan, Jr. and Dennis L. Radcliffe and Steven L. Shepperd provide a thorough and comprehensive slate of preventive dentistry treatments to help each of our patients avoid cavities and other preventable dental problems. Our use of lasers, digital radiography, intra-oral cameras and advanced education  aids us in identifying dental issues small enough to go undetected by the unaided human eye or hidden within a tooth's structure. Our periodontal therapy and other preventive treatment programs help our patients from Atlanta and beyond maintain healthy gums and prevent future periodontal disease. Through brushing, flossing and maintaining regular appointments for checkups and dental cleanings at Towne Lake Family Dentistry, many of our patients are able to maintain strong, healthy smiles for life.

Periodontal Treatment

While most people are conscious of the necessity of brushing, flossing, and regular dental checkups, many are unaware of the importance of proper gum care. When left unchecked, periodontitis (or gum disease) can cause tooth loss and other oral health problems, and recent research points to a link between periodontitis and increased risks of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and some forms of cancer. Unfortunately, studies also show that around 80 percent of American adults have some form of gum disease, of which only a small minority are aware of the condition; while sore, swollen, or bleeding gums, tooth pain or sensitivity, and persistent bad breath are common indicators of gum disease, often periodontal disorders display no obvious symptoms. Towne Lake Family Dentistry provides a full range of periodontal therapy and corrective treatment programs at our Atlanta and Alpharetta-area practice for diagnosing and treating gum disease. These include scaling and root planing, the application of Arestin® antibiotic, and the use of laser periodontal therapy techniques that minimize patient discomfort, post-treatment recovery time, and risk of infection. We also perform laser gingival recontouring, or gum contouring, to remove unhealthy tissue as well as to give patients a more symmetrical look and eliminate the appearance of a “gummy” smile. With periodontal care from the Towne Lake Family Dentistry team, periodontitis, gingivitis, and other gum disorders can be caught and properly treated before they grow into large problems, keeping your smile strong and healthy.

Having your teeth cleaned twice a year is the least expensive yet most beneficial option to maintain your dental and overall health. Researchers have found that periodontitis is associated with other health problems such as cardiovascular disease, stroke, bacterial pneumonia, and increased risk for delivering preterm and/or low birth weight babies. Contact our office today to schedule your new patient appointment and hygiene visit.

Dental Exams and Cleanings

While we perform a wide range of cosmetic and restorative dentistry treatments that can provide our patients with attractive smiles, regular dental cleanings and exams are the foundation upon which beautiful, healthy smiles are built. At Towne Lake Family Dentistry, professional hygiene cleanings are performed by our gentle, caring team of hygienists. When you schedule an appointment at our welcoming office for a regular dental exam and cleaning, we will assist you in establishing and sustaining a routine oral health maintenance program to help ensure a lifetime of great dental health. Each of our hygienists attends continuing educational training programs above and beyond their recommended number of hours, and we are constantly researching new methods for helping our guests feel comfortable and stay healthy.
