Why You Need a Periodontal Screening

Your periodontal health plays a pivotal role in your overall health. Poor gum health can increase your risk for diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. Periodontal disease can cause irreversible damage to your dental health without professional dental treatment. Periodontal treatment in Naples can address the effects of gum disease to prevent further damage to your teeth and gums.

Because periodontal disease can occur without obvious symptoms, periodontal screenings are an important part of maintaining good dental health. Your dentist can perform a periodontal screening during a routine dental checkup. Early detection of periodontal disease allows your periodontist to provide treatments that will stop the progress of gum disease before extensive damage is done.
