Did you know that periodontal disease is the most common cause of tooth loss among adults? One of the major difficulties with gum disease is that its progression is often painless, so patients are often unaware of its development. When you visit Advanced Family Dental Care for an oral examination, your dental office in Beaumont
makes use of the latest technology and techniques to check on the health of your teeth, jaws and gums. If you are exhibiting the early signs of gum disease, Dr. Ronald Citrano is well prepared to provide the critical oral care you require, and can help you to prevent its recurrence in the future.

When dental plaque begins to build up in the mouth, it invites harmful and progressive dental conditions to develop. While it’s easy to spot plaque that has accumulated over our teeth, it’s not as easy to notice when it has migrated down into the gums. Once below the surface, plaque has a tendency to harden into a rock-like substance known as tartar. Normally, flossing helps us to rid the gums of harmful plaque, but once it has hardened, flossing can become increasingly more difficult, and professional intervention becomes necessary. If tartar isn’t removed from the gums, it can begin to wreak havoc on your oral health. Over time, significant loss of bone tissue, gum tissue, and teeth occur if left untreated. Dr. Citrano is experienced in removing harmful bacteria that has burrowed into the gums. In its earliest stages, periodontal disease can be reversed with regular flossing, brushing and teeth cleanings at your dental office in Beaumont
. If it has progressed to a more advanced stage, a deep cleaning may be necessary.
After treatment, most patients can prevent recurrence of the disease with an excellent at-home oral care regimen, supplemented by regular visits to their dental office in Beaumont
. If you have dental anxiety or phobia about your treatment, your dentist may provide sedation to keep you comfortable and at ease during your procedure. To schedule your next oral exam or periodontal treatment, contact Dr. Citrano at Advanced Family Dental Care today.
