As part of your normal check-up with our complete health dentist, he will examine your teeth and gums to make sure they are free from infection and decay. The purpose of this exam is to make sure that you are completely healthy and free from harmful decay or periodontal (gum) disease.
Periodontal disease is a dangerous condition that can lead to tooth loss. Recent studies have also linked periodontal disease to heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and stroke. In order to avoid these problems and to keep you in complete health, we provide deep cleaning services, including scaling and root planing. For more information on preventive dentistry, periodontal care, and complete health dentistry, or to schedule your appointment with our dentist, please call our Staten Island dental practice today.
