Dentists do more than make your teeth clean and healthy – they’re also there to help you maintain good gum health. At Connected Smile Solutions, we offer dental cleanings and periodontal health services to keep both your teeth and gums in the best shape possible.

Why is Good Periodontal Health Important?

Having good periodontal health is essential because it helps to prevent gum disease. Having this condition can damage the tissues that support your teeth and result in them falling out. Healthy gums are also crucial for your overall health. Many heart diseases can occur due to poor oral hygiene.

Oral Cancer Screenings

One way to keep up with your periodontal health is to get oral cancer screenings, which detects cancer that forms anywhere in the mouth or oral cavities. Getting screened regularly will help us spot any early signs of the disease and make it easier to treat. Below are some of the common symptoms of oral cancer.

  • Swelling in the neck
  • A lump on your cheek
  • Loose teeth
  • Difficulty chewing or swallowing
  • Sores on your tongue

Root Planing

Root planing is the deep cleaning below the gum line to treat gum disease. Patients will need this service if plaque and tartar accumulate below the gumline. Root planing is a non-invasive periodontal treatment that uses special tools to clean the entire area. Let your dentist know if your gums bleed during brushing, as we may need to check it out.
