At Rush Creek Dentistry, we want to do everything we can to make sure everyone in your family has a healthy smile for life. One of our biggest concerns in protecting your family's smiles is fighting the onset and spread of gum disease. Gum disease is a serious but often overlooked dental problem that affects nearly half of all adults in the U.S and is a leading cause of tooth loss.
The first step in fighting gum disease is to prevent it from occurring in the first place. This is why Rush Creek Dentistry wants to treat your whole family, so we have a chance to instill good dental health habits in your kids' lives from an early age. Everyone in your family can fight gum disease by learning the importance of regular dental hygiene and visiting the dentist. As your kids learn how to brush and floss their teeth properly and you remind them to do this two or three times a day, your own dental hygiene habits may improve as well. When you bring your kids with you to the dentist, they will be less likely to be afraid of visiting the dentist later in life. All of these preventative measures will give everyone in your family a better chance of being in the half of the population that is free of gum disease.
If you, or someone in your family, already have gum disease, we will help you find the appropriate treatment for the stage of gum disease you are experiencing. This usually begins with a deep cleaning that will remove the plaque that has built up at the gumline causing the infection. Once the gums have been cleaned and only healthy tissue is left, we will coach you on improved oral health habits so that gum disease does not return.
Since gum disease is such a widespread problem, what are you doing to protect your family? When you want your family to have the best professional dentistry care, call our office in Arlington, TX to make an appointment to visit and see if we could be a good fit for your family.
