Dr. Carrington provides patients of all ages with the high quality care they need to enjoy optimal oral health and an attractive smile. In addition to painstaking attention to detail, we employ artistry and quality materials that will achieve the most natural appearance. While we are highly skilled at restoring and enhancing smiles, we know that the basis for beauty is oral health. Diseases in the mouth not only affect teeth and gums, they also affect the entire body. Research demonstrates a link between oral disease and various serious health problems. We hope to develop lifelong relationships with our patients through which they are empowered to enjoy their healthiest smile – and body!
Periodontic care is the focused preventive or restorative treatment of gum disease. This inflammatory condition in the mouth can occur with little to no visible consequence – for a time. Because the signs of gingivitis, the early stage of gum disease, are so subtle, many people do not seek the care they need until the condition has reached an advanced stage. Dr. Carrington encourages patients to have routine exams and cleanings every six months. A proactive approach to periodontic care can help you avoid discomfort, embarrassment, and tooth loss.
