More than “just a cleaning”
Periodontal disease affects one out of every five adults 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 very serious diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, stroke, pre-term birth and many others. For a long time it was thought that bacteria was the factor that linked periodontal disease to other disease in the body; however, more recent research demonstrates that inflammation may also contribute to the association. Therefore, treating bacteria and inflammation may not only help manage periodontal diseases 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 can help us determine whether or not you have periodontal disease. Periodontal disease typically begins with common symptoms such as red, puffy or bleeding gums or gums that are receding away from your teeth. Gingivitis is the beginning stage of periodontal disease and should not be ignored. If left untreated, the disease will progress and could require periodontal scaling and root planning or even surgery to remove the bacteria and reduce the inflammation in your mouth.
At Smile Nuvo, we believe there is a better way! We believe that early intervention is the key to preserving not only your oral health but your general health as well. Therefore, we have implemented a system called Nuvo Spa therapy integrated into our hygiene protocol. Not only is this therapy a non-surgical method but thorough, using advanced technology only offered at selected specialist offices. Nuvo spa therapy is like a lavage oral spa cleaning for creating optimal health for your 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 not only use the latest in periodontal laser treatments but also utilize an integrated system which combines ultrasonic plaque and calculus removal but also a lavage technique using medicinal solutions and powders for optimal oral hygiene results. Making the experience of having a cleaning at Smile Nuvo nothing less than a spa treatment for your smile.
In order to make sure we keep our patients as healthy as possible; our hygienists will do a thorough periodontal evaluation every time you see them. They will keep you apprised of the health of your gums and will alert you if they see any signs or symptoms of periodontal disease.
