Prevent Periodontal Disease at County Dental
As one of our preventative dentistry options at our Poughkeepsie, Rockland County, Orange County, and other Hudson Valley, New York locations, we offer a comprehensive soft tissue management program (STMP). This hygiene maintenance program is designed to prevent periodontal (gum) disease and treat any existing infections in order to establish good oral health.
During your initial examination, we will look for common warning signs of periodontal disease and evaluate the condition of the gums, noting any recession, bleeding, or bone loss. We will also evaluate your risk factors for gum disease, such as diabetes, smoking, and the use of certain medications.
If you do exhibit signs of gum disease, we will create a customized treatment plan to reduce the infection and reverse the progression of the disease. Unlike other practices that refer you elsewhere for periodontal treatment, County Dental has an experienced periodontist on staff who is available at all of our New York locations.
