Williamsburg BioCompatible dentist’s periodontal disease treatment preserves oral health
Evans Dental Care combines close patient consultation and education with advanced diagnostics and BioCompatible materials to prevent threats to your oral health and, as needed, to restore your dental health with periodontal disease treatment in Williamsburg.
Getting to the root of a major cause of tooth loss
“Periodontal” refers to “periodontium,” structures that support your teeth. The better-known term for periodontal disease, gum disease, refers to the supportive soft tissues that keep your teeth looking, feeling, and functioning their best.
A BioCompatible practitioner and leader in the holistic dental industry, having helped form The American Academy for Oral Systemic Health, Dr. Evans knows the best treatment is prevention. Gum disease is a progressive condition. We check for signs of the disease during exams and cleanings at Evans Dental Care, which are scheduled at intervals customized to your oral health needs and medical history.
Check-ups are particularly critical during the early-stage of the disease, when damaging effects can be reversed and the condition is asymptomatic. Since early-stage periodontal disease is “silent,” Dr. Evans can identify problems you didn’t even know existed. By the time you see blood on your toothbrush or floss, or have puffy and tender gums, the inflammation associated with gingivitis may have become worse.
Guidance for better health
The Evans Dental Care team can suggest ways to effectively minimize or eliminate contributors to periodontal disease, such as inadequate oral hygiene, tooth-grinding, and tobacco use. Products may be suggested to stimulate the production of saliva for patients who have dry mouth. Dry mouth is associated with tooth damage due to saliva being a natural cleanser.
The team also offers many BioCompatible materials and treatments to accurately and gently identify and curtail existing disease for the long life of your healthy, beautiful smile.
