Periodontal disease is an invisible infection

8 out of 10 adults in the U.S. have some form of periodontal disease.

Known as the “hidden disease” or “the silent epidemic”, it’s not easy for the untrained eye to see bacteria hidden below the gums, but the problems it can bring can can have serious impacts on both your oral health and your overall health. 

Studies show that there is a link between gum disease and other systemic disorders. Oral bacteria can be a portal, or first entry, for bacteria that can eventually affect other organs.

Oral health issues:

  • Gum loss
  • Bone loss
  • Tooth loss

Medical issues:

  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Dementia
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Premature birth

Win the battle with double-barelled treatment

This modern method of gum disease treatment includes a prescribed solution to combat your oral bacteria combined with standard tartar and plaque removaing procedures, like root scaling and planing. After you’re treated by Dr. Imm, you’ll be sent home with your personalized, molded mouth tray. You’ll use it continue the treatment at home by continuing with the anti-bacterial dental solution.

By keeping on top of infection at home, you’ll strengthen your fight against gum disease by managing bacteria that often returns to your teeth in between treatments.
