Before (left) and after (right) treatment
What hygiene process should be performed at home?
Proper home care starts with proper brushing and flossing, but also may require the use of dental rinses, oral irrigators (ViaJet, Waterpik, etc.), tongue scrapers, and other floss aids. Every person’s hygiene is dependent on their specific needs. But, it’s critical to focus on inflammation, or more importantly, lack of inflammation, in your mouth.
Why is treating inflammation key to good overall health?
Inflammation doesn’t occur in an isolated fashion, meaning your body is mounting a response and not just the target area is affected. That is why bleeding (inflamed) gums has been linked to heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and a host of other diseases.
At Dental Design Studio, Dr. Richard K. Whalen and his team customize every patient’s treatment plan to eliminate inflammation and keep your smile as well as your overall well-being in optimal shape. There is no cookie-cutter approach, but a plan that may include the use of a laser, localized delivery of antibiotics, special toothpaste, and more.
