Gum Disease And Periodontal Care

th (3)

Dr. Vaughan’s specialty training and experience as a periodontist put him in a good position to help you control your periodontal disease as inexpensively and comfortably as possible.  We prefer to work with our patients to improve their hygiene efforts and see if their gum disease can be brought under control without expensive and uncomfortable treatment.  In most cases it can.

Since gum disease is caused by the bacteria that live in your mouth.  Reducing the bacterial load by improving your hygiene is the only way to control it.  There are no magic toothpastes, rinses, or treatments that will help if you don’t practice good hygiene on a daily basis.  Even if you pay for expensive treatments your gum disease will return unless your hygiene is  improved.

While it is true that  some people are more prone to gum disease than others, we have never seen a case that did not get better with improved hygiene.
