Periodontal Therapy Cures Gum Disease

How Can I Keep My Gums Healthy?

Smiling man in dental chairMaintaining strong, healthy gum tissue is very important for your smile. That’s why our team recommends that patients undergo regular periodontal exams so that we can diagnose the presence of periodontal disease (also known as gum disease) as early as possible. Periodontal disease is one of the most common health problems in the world, not to mention the leading cause of tooth loss among American adults. If you’re overdue for a checkup, don't hesitate to contact Dina H. Cocco, DDS, PC today here in Ann Arbor, MI.

When Dr. Cocco performs your periodontal examination, she will check for the following symptoms:

Periodontal disease comes in two distinct forms: gingivitis and periodontitis. During gingivitis, symptoms are mild and reversible as long as the patient is able to combat them quickly with personal oral hygiene and professional maintenance from a team like ours. Unfortunately, periodontitis is a more advanced and permanent version of the disease, and it occurs when gingivitis goes untreated for too long. That’s just one of the reasons why we strongly recommend that you pay us a visit every six months!
