Healthy gums and teeth with Greater St. Louis Periodontics
“Adults over the age of 35 lose more teeth to gum diseases than from cavities.”
That’s right….Three out of four adults are affected at some time in their life. The best way to prevent cavities and periodontal disease is by daily thorough tooth brushing and flossing techniques and regular professional examinations and cleanings. Unfortunately, even with the most diligent home dental care, people still can develop some form of periodontal disease. Once this disease starts, professional intervention by a dental specialist is necessary to prevent its progress and Periodontist William M. Cohen, D.M.D., M.S. is here to help.
