Dear patients, colleagues, friends and family, silvera_maria_1

Let’s talk about your teeth expectations.

What did you say, teeth expectations?

Yes, that is precisely it. What are your expectations in regards to your teeth?

Here are some questions for you to consider:

Do you believe within that you can keep your natural teeth for your lifetime?

Or, do you believe that you can only keep some of your teeth for a lifetime?

Or, do you believe it is inevitable that you will lose your teeth and expect to wear a denture by the time you are 45, 50, or 60 because of periodontal disease?

Thanks be to God for the blessing of hope.

There is always the hope that you can maintain at least some of your natural teeth, if not all of your natural teeth.

It all depends on you. None of us are islands onto ourselves. We all need help from time to time from others.

This is the case with people who have periodontal disease. The earlier you know about having it and receive treatment the better it is for you in keeping as many of your own natural teeth as possible.

You are not alone if you have periodontal disease. The question remains, are you reaching out to your general dentist and attending your regularly scheduled dental cleaning sessions? Are you brushing your teeth at least two times per day, preferably three times per day? Also, are you flossing at least once a day?

Also, are you aware of the important role that a periodontist like Dr. Silvera, a specialized dental professional in the area of periodontal disease who can help you keep as many of your natural teeth as is possible?

If you have periodontal disease, there is an additional safety measure in a specialized cleaning called periodontal maintenance. During periodontal maintenance, the periodontist reviews and updates your medical history including providing you with an oral cancer exam, how healthy are your gums around your teeth, and reviews x-rays to determine any bone loss that could affect the stability of any of your teeth thus making teeth vulnerable to loss. Also, cleaning is done below the gum to remove plaque to keep the periodontal disease under control.

Call today 805-928-7979 Dr. Silvera to schedule a periodontal maintenance. Check out Dr. Silvera’s website www.healthyteethandgumsinsantamaria.com for more information on periodontal maintenance and other services.
