Screening for Gum Disease

Checking for gum disease, or periodontal disease, is one of the most important screenings your dentist can provide. Without healthy gums, the chances that your teeth will stay healthy for long drop significantly. Gum disease can lead to a host of other problems, up to and including tooth loss. Watch this video to see how simple a gum disease screening really is.

As you’ll see, screening for gum disease is neither painful nor invasive. Your dentist uses a simple probe to measure the space in the pockets of your gums, and only goes just until he or she feels resistance. This process is extremely valuable in determining the best options for your optimal oral health.
