At Silver Lake Dental in New Brighton, we treat many people suffering from periodontal (gum) disease in the Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota area. An estimated 80 percent of American adults currently have some form of the disease. The cases of periodontal disease we treat at our New Brighton, Minnesota practice range from simple gum inflammation to serious disease that results in major damage to the soft tissue and bone that support the teeth. In the worst cases, teeth are lost. Many options are available to combat periodontal disease. Minneapolis/St. Paul area residents have benefited for years from the treatment selections available at Silver Lake Dental.
Gum disease is a threat to your oral health. Research is also pointing to possible health effects of periodontal diseases that go well beyond your mouth. Whether it is stopped, slowed, or gets progressively worse depends a great deal on how well you care for you teeth and gums every day.
Our mouths are full of bacteria. These bacteria, along with mucus and other particles, constantly form a sticky, colorless "plaque" on teeth. Brushing and flossing help get rid of plaque. Plaque that is not removed can harden and form bacteria harboring "tartar" that brushing doesn't clean. Only a professional cleaning by a dentist or dental hygienist can remove tartar.
At Silver Lake Dental we realize the importance of proper home care to prevent periodontal disease. Minnesota residents have found Rota-dent® to be the solution for reducing both dental plaque and gingivitis when used as part of a program of good oral hygiene and regular professional care. Only Rota-dent® operates and cleans in the same manner as the dental hygiene hand piece (true rotary action). The soft, rotating brushes gently clean with tooth-by-tooth precision. Rota-dent® is capable of cleaning areas that are difficult, if not impossible, for conventional and electric toothbrushes. The effectiveness of the Rota-dent® instrument has been tested in over 20 clinical studies. These studies show the value of the Rota-dent® in controlling dental plaque, reducing stains, and cleaning braces and implants. Rota-dent® also helps control dental plaque and inflammation associated with periodontal disease (contact our Minneapolis/St. Paul area office or visit www.prodentec.com to learn more).
