Protecting Your Teeth and Your Overall Health

Gum disease is the number one reason adults lose teeth prematurely. In addition, emerging research indicates that issues involving the gums and bones play an important role in your overall health.

Periodontics is the area of dentistry that deals with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the gums and bone surrounding the teeth. Often these diseases, such as serious bacterial infections, can destroy the fibers that keep your teeth attached as well as the jawbone itself. If the condition is left untreated, these problems can lead to tooth loss as well as other serious health problems.

At Herbert Dental Group, we believe in building a solid foundation of prevention through proper hygiene instruction. Normally, proper daily brushing and flossing along with regularly scheduled checkups go along way in preventing periodontal disease.

Most people assume that surgery is necessary for periodontal disease. Should treatment be necessary, non-surgical options may be available, depending on the situation.

Dr. Brown and Dr. Collazo are both top-notch! I have had to see them both for different reasons. Dr. Collazo helped me back in 2008 with seeking treatment for my TMJ-related pain and did a wonderful job! Dr. Brown sees me and the rest of my family for our regular dental care. She does a fantastic job – truly taking time and getting to know our family. I don’t doubt she cares! Cannot recommend this practice enough!
