12At Sara Cummins Aesthetics & Implant Dentistry, we are focused on the health of your gums just as much as we are focused on the health of your teeth. Gum disease can lead to tooth decay, so healthy gums mean healthy teeth. This is why we offer periodontal treatments.

With our periodontics services, we can help prevent the development of gum disease through early detection. If gum disease has developed, we can help treat it. Whatever the case may be, our ultimate goal is to keep you in good dental health. That means offering dental care services that include the entire mouth.

The Benefits of Periodontal Services

You can think of periodontal services as the frontline defense against gum disease. Our periodontal care is designed to help keep your gums looking and feeling healthy, and healthy gums are important to your overall dental health. Here are some other benefits of periodontal dentistry:

  • No More Bad Breath – Gum disease can cause bad breath, but periodontal dentistry can help get rid of it.
  • Painless Chewing – Whenever there is a problem with the gums, it can make chewing difficult. Since chewing food properly is important to good digestion, not being able to properly chew food is more than just an inconvenience. Periodontal care can help with chewing by relieving pain in the gums.
  • Help Prevent Tooth Decay – Infected teeth can lead to gum disease, but gums disease can also lead to tooth decay.
