Regular dental cleanings and exams from Dr. Petry and Dr. Walton can help you prevent periodontal disease, also known as gum disease. Research has shown a strong link between periodontal disease and heart disease or stroke. But with regular treatment your risk can be reduced.
Treatment includes a thorough cleaning of root surfaces at the gum line to remove plaque, tartar and bacteria that cause gingivitis, the earliest stage of gum disease. This simple procedure also helps to prevent infection that causes bad breath.Request an Appointment
