Periodontics is specifically concerned with the structures surrounding and supporting the teeth, the gums and bone. Everyone is susceptible to periodontal (gum) disease. Your chances of confronting larger issues in the future can be avoided with simple oral health at home and regular visits to our office.
Untreated and severe periodontics cases can travel from the mouth through the blood stream. They can have reaching effects, affecting the heart, liver, and other organs.
Dr. Updike and staff are ready to combat such cases. Contact our office today for treatment.
Grinding your teeth at night is detrimental to your oral health. Similar to a plastic retainer, a night guard will be individually and exactly fitted to your mouth and teeth. Teeth grinding will permanently wear down your teeth, opening them to an array of problems. The night guard will be used only during your sleeping hours to protect your teeth. Prolong your oral health even while your rest.
