Cosmetic Dentist in Chesapeake
At the Center for Cosmetic & Restorative Dentistry, Dr. Tanya Brown and team utilize the most advanced and up-to-date technologies available to provide the best care for your dental needs and overall health.
According to the American Dental Association, periodontal disease is caused by the bacteria in the plaque consistently forming on and between your teeth. If plaque is not properly removed, it can form pockets in your gums that will collect more bacteria and potentially damage the tissues that support your teeth.
Studies show that people with periodontal disease are six times more likely to have diabetes, and people with diabetes are six times more likely to have periodontal disease. Genetics can also play a role in your risk factors.
There is good news! At The Center for Cosmetic & Restorative Dentistry, we can help stop the dangers of periodontal disease before they begin. We offer Oral DNA Bacterial Testing. This is one of the most up-to-date diagnostic systems for assessing your periodontal disease risks. The test provides Dr. Brown with accurate information about the infection-causing bacteria in your mouth and about your genetic susceptibility to the pathogenic bacteria. We will also send a copy of your report to your Physician so they will have valuable information for keeping you healthy.
