Laser Gum Therapy and Invisalign
Most think of New Year’s Day or Spring as the time for new beginnings, but what better time to start than now. November marks the turn into the winter season and while most of us are usually wrapped up in holiday gatherings and gifts for others, we forget about one very important person.. YOU! We have to take care of ourselves to be able to take care of others the best we can. This starts with total mind and body health, and especially your smile!

Two of the most common conditions in dentistry include Periodontal Disease and Crooked Teeth. Periodontal Disease is an active infection in the gums that must be treated by a professional. A common misconception is that a patient can brush or floss a little extra, but toothbrushes and floss can not reach the bacteria that have now burrowed pockets around our teeth. When left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to a number of other conditions including tooth loss. By using traditional procedures such as Scaling and Root Planing combined with our advanced technology diode lasers and medicinal irrigation we can rid you of the bacteria that is causing the infection!

Advanced Dental Care is partnering with the American Heart Association this February to celebrate National Heart Month!
All month long we will be bringing awareness of heart health and the link to your oral health. Maintaining good oral health can directly affect your heart health and vice versa. Sometimes we see that if a patient presents with active periodontal disease, they also have been diagnosed with high blood pressure or another heart disease. This is because the body is a system, and every subsystem is interconnected.
One of the main indicators of our oral and overall health is our gums. Regular exams by your dentist and hygienist can help detect abnormalities early on. Periodontal disease, for example, progresses in stages and when caught early can be treated more easily.
When bacteria builds up on teeth and migrates below the gum line, the bacteria can irritate the gums causing early stage periodontal disease. When left untreated by a dental professional, the disease can quickly and easily progress to more advanced stages creating pockets. Pockets above 3mm in depth are cause for concern. Like all dental disorders, the sooner the condition can be treated, the better case for successful recovery.
