Gum Disease Therapy for Dallas Special Needs Patients
We help Patients Achieve Optimal Gum Health
Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss for adults in the US. In the case of special needs patients, whom we work with exclusively, gum disease can occur at any stage of life. Left untreated, the condition can lead to tooth loss, gum recession, bone deterioration, and complication in overall health. Other problems, such as diabetes complications and increased risk for heart attack, stroke, Alzheimer's disease etc., are of great concern, as well.
Our gentle hygiene team offers non-surgical periodontal care for special needs patients, including the disabled, handicapped, and mentally retarded. Periodontal therapy can involve scaling to remove plaque and tartar (calculus) from below the gum line, root planing to smooth teeth roots, and antibiotic therapy to destroy bacterial infection when indicated. Good gum health contributes to good oral health, which promotes total overall health, so regular checkups and hygiene visits are vital.
