The Importance of Prevention

Dental health starts at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet. Avoiding dental disease continues at Palencia Dental with cleaning and prevention. Dr. Kinsey and our dental hygienists work to promote, restore, and maintain your oral health. Prevention includes regular dental exams, x-rays, cleanings, sealants, and fluoride to protect the teeth.

Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease attacks the gums and bone that support the teeth. When plaque is not removed, it turns to tartar, or calculus, and may begin to destroy the gums and bone. This problem is more common than most people imagine. In fact, periodontal disease affects four out of five people. Most are unaware that they have it because it is painless in the early stages. Research has uncovered a link between periodontal disease and other health conditions, including cardiovascular disease, stroke, diabetes, bacterial pneumonia, and increased risk during pregnancy.

Signs of periodontal disease include:

  • Bleeding gums
  • Red and puffy gums
  • Tenderness or discomfort
  • Receding gums
  • Loose teeth
  • New spacing between the teeth
  • Pus around the teeth and gums
  • Persistent bad breath

You can reduce your risk of developing periodontal diseases with good oral hygiene, a balanced diet, and regular visits to Palencia Dental for cleaning and prevention in St. Augustine. Our dental office is located just minutes from Nocatee, Jacksonville, and World Golf Village.
