For comprehensive periodontal exams, you can trust Dr. Kirkland of North Point Periodontics. Did you know that 80% of Americans have some form of periodontal disease? Did you know that bone loss is silent and loss of bone is totally painless? Many Americans are unaware that disease of the mouth can affect their overall health. Recent research indicates that gum infections may have a direct relationship to cardiovascular disease. Additionally, gum disease has been linked to premature deliveries, pre-term, low-birth-weight babies and diabetes. That is why it is so important to get regular periodontal exams and to find the right periodontist to treat the disease that destroys gums tissue. Dr. Kirkland is committed to your health. With their expertise and state-of-the-art technology with our periodontal services, you expect excellent results.
Our experienced dentists provide comprehensive periodontal exams to check for signs of gum disease, oral cancer and other oral health problems. During an initial examination, Dr. Kirkland will thoroughly examine your gum tissue and collect data related to bone levels, pocket depths, bleeding points and overall gum health. This examination enables us to provide you with an appropriate diagosis, prognosis and treatment plan.
Once your mouth is restored to health, it is important that you make a commitment to maintain your dental health. To achieve this, it is important that you return on a regular basis for a routine examination along with the removal of plaque and calculus. We request that you alternate hygiene re-care visits with our office and your general dentist. Regular preventative care and periodontal maintenance is the best insurance of your future overall health.
