Dr. Johnson on gum disease treatment
It’s very important that we all have healthy gums. What we do here in the practice is first assess every patient that comes in as to what their health is currently. Our hygienists are very good about helping with that, they’re very knowledgeable. They do a lot of CE courses as well as what I do in learning all the aspects of good health in their oral cavity. So, we do a lot of things with treatment to help get their health back in order for the patients’ sake. And again, simplifying it for the patients so they understand it, because a lot of what is missed in dentistry, particularly with gum disease, is the patient understanding what we’re doing and what they need to do to maintain it.
