Periodontic Dentistry in Hershey, PA

At Hershey Family Dentistry, we focus on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal (gum) diseases. Our dedicated team understands the importance of periodontic dentistry and maintaining healthy gums for the overall well-being of your smile and your body. We are committed to providing comprehensive periodontal care to ensure your gums remain healthy and strong.

Understanding Periodontal Disease: Periodontal disease, commonly known as gum disease, is an infection of the tissues that support your teeth. It is typically caused by plaque buildup and can lead to swollen, bleeding gums, bad breath, and, in advanced stages, tooth loss. Early detection and treatment are crucial to prevent the progression of the disease and protect your oral health.

Our Periodontal Services:

  • Comprehensive Exams: Regular check-ups to monitor the health of your gums and detect any signs of periodontal disease early.
  • Scaling and Root Planing: A deep cleaning procedure that removes plaque and tartar from below the gum line and smooths the root surfaces to help the gums reattach to the teeth.

Preventing Gum Disease: Maintaining good oral hygiene is essential for preventing gum disease. This includes brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and visiting Hershey Family Dentistry for regular check-ups and cleanings. Our team will also provide you with personalized tips and techniques to keep your gums healthy at home.

We are dedicated to ensuring that your gums are as healthy as your teeth. We use the latest techniques and technology to provide effective and comfortable periodontal care. If you have concerns about your gum health or if it’s time for your routine check-up, please contact us to schedule an appointment. Together, we can keep your smile healthy and beautiful for a lifetime.
