At Scott A. Young DDS in Charlotte, NC, we understand that healthy gums are the foundation of a healthy smile. Our comprehensive gum health services, including Periodontal Maintenance Procedures, Dental Implants, and Scaling & Root Planing, are designed to prevent, diagnose, and treat gum disease, ensuring your gums stay healthy and strong.

Our Gum Health Services:

  • Periodontal Maintenance Procedures: Regular maintenance visits are crucial for patients who have previously been treated for periodontal disease. These appointments involve thorough cleanings, examination, and ongoing monitoring to prevent the recurrence of gum disease.
  • Dental Implants: For patients with missing teeth, dental implants provide a stable and long-lasting solution that also helps preserve gum and bone health.
  • Scaling & Root Planing: This deep-cleaning procedure removes tartar and bacteria from below the gum line and smooths the roots of the teeth to promote healing and reattachment of the gums to the teeth.

Benefits of Focusing on Gum Health:

  • Prevention of Gum Disease: Early intervention and regular care can prevent gum disease from developing or progressing.
  • Improved Overall Health: Maintaining gum health can contribute to overall health, reducing the risk of heart disease, stroke, and other conditions linked to periodontal disease.
  • Enhanced Smile Aesthetics: Healthy gums improve the appearance of your smile and contribute to the success of cosmetic dental treatments.
