If you are looking for a dental practice where you can receive complete cosmetic, general, and restorative dental care, we urge you to visit us at Koplin Dental. Our top-notch dentist Dr. Michael W. Koplin, will also make sure that you receive proper gum disease therapy in Mt Laurel NJ, when needed.
It is impossible to have healthy teeth without having healthy gums. When gums develop gum disease, infection from the gum disease can travel down to your jawbone and cause teeth to loosen and even fall out. In fact, infection from gum disease can also travel through your bloodstream to other parts of your body and cause serious medical problems to develop. For these reasons, you want to make sure that you do everything you can to prevent gum disease. The best way to avoid developing problems with gum disease is to practice excellent at-home oral hygiene. This means that you should regularly brush and floss your teeth on a daily basis, and make sure that you are doing it in the most effective manner as taught by our dentist. You will also want to come to our dental practice for professional dental cleanings every six months, or as recommended by our dentist. All of these steps will help to ensure that your gums remain healthy. If during a dental exam, our dentist determines that you are developing gingivitis, a precursor to gum disease, he will most likely recommend that you have several regular dental cleanings over the coming months in order to help your gums return to good health. If it is determined that deep pockets have formed between your teeth and gums, you have the beginning of gum disease and will need to have gum disease therapy in Mt Laurel NJ in the form of a scaling and root planing treatment.
