Maintaining good oral health is critical to maintaining good general health. Yet surprisingly, about 47 percent of Americans have some degree of periodontal disease, even though many already see a dentist. Treating and managing these problems early is vital, according to the team of board-certified periodontists at South Florida Center for Periodontics & Implant Dentistry, who excel at managing periodontitis (gum disease) or permanently replacing teeth with dental implants. In 2002, they trademarked TeethToday® to immediately reverse years of dental problems, allowing patients to predictably leave the office with new, fixed, implant-supported teeth. Their motto is “No one leaves our office without teeth!”
The dentists are known for implementing technology to improve results and minimize healing time. One example is they helped create, test and obtain FDA approval for the world’s first robotic system for precise implant placement. They use lasers, advanced imaging, digital bite analysis and other technology, and offer sedation.
While the office has always been meticulous about infection control through universal precautions, they recently redoubled those efforts and implemented new measures to protect against the spread of airborne diseases like coronavirus. Their multi-tiered approach to minimize droplet and aerosol production and pathogenesis also includes regular hospital grade sanitization and fogging, use of antiseptic rinse and irrigation, high powered aerosol and droplet vacuums, meticulous surface decontamination, air filtration and significant attention to scheduling for social distancing.
With all these measures in place, they are able to provide the full scope of services for which they are renowned, and provide patients with the confidence to have all their dental needs met. Now, more than ever, optimizing dental health is important for maintaining dental health. New information suggests that people with gum inflammation (periodontitis) may be predisposed to worse complications with COVID-19.
You don’t need a referral to call the office for an evaluation or periodic maintenance.
