Gum Disease Treatment
At Pan Dental Care, we love healthy pink gums. Why? Because healthy pink gums can help a person live a longer and healthier life! Unfortunately, periodontal disease (also known as gum disease) is the number one cause of tooth loss among adults here in the United States.
This oral infection is no laughing matter, and our experienced team works hard to help patients avoid it through focused preventive care and effective oral therapy options. We also have an in-house periodontist who provides specialty services to restore much-needed health to teeth and gums once damage is already present.
Have you recently eradicated gingivitis or periodontal disease from your mouth and gums? If so, then you are feeling good about your mouth and gums. Your teeth have no plaque and tartar and you won’t need to visit your dentist again for another year, right? Wrong! Many patients are not aware that periodontal maintenance is the only sure way to keep gum disease from returning. Periodontal maintenance is regularly performed at certain intervals after procedures such as scaling and root planing. Periodontal maintenance includes the removal of plaque and tartar, scaling and tooth planing and polishing. Your dentist will determine the frequency the periodontal maintenance is needed.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Did you know that on average, one person dies from oral cancer every hour? Catching this dangerous condition in the earliest stages possible can make a world of difference for our patients, which is why the Pan Dental Care team works diligently during your regular preventive appointments. A thorough examination of the tongue and oral tissues will shed light on any concerning indications, such as discoloration and lumps. If needed, questionable lesions can be tested through biopsy to determine if cancerous cells are present.
