More than “just a cleaning”
Periodontal disease affects one out of every five adults in the U.S. and is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. Research has shown that periodontal disease can affect your entire system and is linked to other serious diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, stroke, pre-term birth and many others. Going back in time it was thought that bacteria was the factor that linked periodontal disease to other diseases in the body, however, more recent research demonstrates that inflammation may also contribute to this association. Ultimately, treating bacteria and inflammation may not only help manage periodontal disease but may also help with the management of other chronic inflammatory conditions such as diabetes and heart disease.
A comprehensive examination, periodontal evaluation and x-rays help determine whether you may or may not have the beginnings of periodontal disease. Periodontal disease typically begins with common symptoms such as red, puffy or bleeding gums or gums that recede away from the teeth. Gingivitis is the beginning stage of periodontal disease and should not be ignored. If left untreated, Gingivitis may also progress to the point of requiring periodontal scaling and root planing or even surgery to remove the bacteria and reduce inflammation.
At Smile Nuvo, we believe there is a better way! Early intervention is the key to preserving not only the patient’s oral health but general health as well. As a result, we have implemented a system called Nuvo Spa therapy that integrates well into the overall hygiene protocol. Not only is this therapy a non-surgical method but it uses advanced technology only offered at select specialist offices. Nuvo spa therapy is similar to a lavage oral spa cleaning to create optimal health for oral hygiene by using the latest technology in an integrated ultrasonic and lavage of the gums utilizing medicaments to prevent and treat periodontal disease.
We employ the latest in periodontal laser treatments and utilize an integrated system that combines ultrasonic plaque and calculus removal and a lavage technique using medicinal solutions and powders for optimal oral hygiene results. The experience of a cleaning at Smile Nuvo is nothing less than a spa treatment for your smile!
To keep our patients as healthy as possible, our hygienists do a thorough periodontal evaluation each visit to keep you apprised of the health of your gums.
