Periodontal Treatment in Fort Lauderdale, FL

Periodontal (gum) disease affects a large majority of the American population and yet often goes untreated for various reasons. This serious disease is caused by the accumulation of plaque and calculus on the teeth and gums. If it is left untreated, periodontal disease can cause bone, gum, and tooth loss and has also been linked to:

  • Stroke
  • High blood pressure
  • Pregnancy complications
  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes

We aim to protect you from these health risks at the office of Dr. Chencin. To do so, we provide scaling and root planing (two deep cleaning procedures) as well as periodontal preventive care. The best way to prevent periodontal disease is to eat a healthy and balanced diet, visit the dentist regularly (once every six months at least) for your cleanings and exams, and to brush and floss daily. Gums should never be red, swollen, or bleeding, so if you notice any of those symptoms, contact our office immediately. Our Fort Lauderdale dentist, Dr. Josef Chencin, and our exceptional hygiene team will be happy to take care of your smile and help you return to optimal oral health as soon as possible.
