Most gum disease is caused by bacteria, so Dr. Goodman discusses the importance of maintaining healthy gums through patient education. By teaching a patient the importance of maintaining optimal oral health, Dr. Goodman can help him or her achieve a more beautiful. Thorough oral evaluations are performed by our team during every hygienic cleaning, so a patient's dental health can be evaluated and monitored.
Most gum disease is caused by bacteria. So, you know, if we educate early and we realize what we're dealing with is bacteria we can help educate people on taking care of their teeth properly with good brushing skills, good flossing skills, good diet. We should not see, just because we're getting older, my gums are falling apart. Getting bone loss and getting recession. You really shouldn't see that anymore. It's a new time, a new day and age, and people don't have to follow through the footsteps of their grandparents or their parents. I mean, it's not something we have to inherit. We inherit habits but we can also inherit good habits. And, you know, the more we educate each other on what we learn, the better the habits can be and we can then pass on to our kids.
