Dental Hygiene Therapy in Wilmington, NC
Healthy gums are the first step to complete oral health and the place we begin dental hygiene therapy treatment with our new patients. Symptoms of gum disease include:
- Bleeding when brushing or flossing
- Puffiness or tenderness of the gums
- Halitosis (bad breath)
- Loose-feeling teeth
Dr. Edgerton and Dr. Glenn use a variety of new technologies, such as ultrasonic scalers, to help make the treatment of this disease more thorough and comfortable than ever before.
The ultrasonic scalers gently remove bacteria from beneath the gum and on the tooth root with a gentle pulse of water. They also can apply antibiotics directly to gums to help kill the bacteria that cause the disease.
This disease is treatable, even at an advanced stage, to help you keep your teeth and improve your health.
The office of Drs. Edgerton and Glenn are located in Wilmington, NC and close to the Landfall community, Mayfaire Town Center, Porters Neck and Wrightsville Beach.
