Our practice is excited to offer a new program called Active Gum Therapy.
This is our professional, individualized treatment of a patient’s gum inflammation. Since inflammation and disease in your mouth can negatively affect disease in your body, our goal of the program is to stop, stabilize, or reverse the disease process. When you improve gum inflammation, you help with overall health in the rest of the body.
When a patient chooses to participate in AGT, our licensed hygienists and doctors carry out a true therapy model that is customized for each patient’s health. There is no one-size-fits-all AGT plan because our conditions, our mouths, and our bodies are unique.
Patients can take advantage of this customized treatment and get started stabilizing their oral health by visiting with one of our professionals at your next dental visit.
70% of Americans have gums that bleed at some level. These bleeding gums are a sign of inflammation. Research clearly shows that inflammatory diseases in one part of your body can simultaneously escalate other inflammatory disease in your body. Chronic inflammation is serious. Common inflammatory diseases include heart disease and autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and multiple sclerosis. Inflammation is also linked to chronic disease processes like diabetes and Dementia.
Our dental team is certain that a therapy model is the best chance to manage inflammation and gum disease. Patients can take advantage of this customized treatment and get started stabilizing their oral health by visiting with one of our professionals at your next dental visit.
If you have further questions about how these contribute to one another, we would love to discuss that with you.
