SERVING GEORGETOWN, ROUND ROCK, AND AUSTIN, TEXAS
Taking care of your gums is one of the most important components in your overall dental health. Periodontal, or gum, maintenance is defined as any step you or your dentist takes to help prevent gum disease from taking hold or recurring. This is critical because advanced periodontal disease leads to tooth decay and even tooth loss.
The most important part of keeping your mouth healthy is the daily care such as brushing, flossing and using an irrigator like a Waterpik to care for your teeth regularly. If you consistently follow these practices, it will help prevent plaque and tartar from building up on your teeth above and below the gum line and biofilm below the gumline.
In addition to keeping your gums healthy through daily dental routines, you should also continue having your teeth professionally cleaned at our office every six months. During these cleanings, our team can eliminate the dangerous biofilm, tartar, and plaque that can build up in hard-to-reach places near the gum line. For those with more advanced periodontal disease, we offer non-surgical gum care utilizing non-invasive techniques, soft-tissue laser treatment, and anti-bacterial mouth rinses.
Unfortunately, some diseases, such as diabetes, increase your risk of serious periodontal disease regardless of your daily hygiene routine. In the case of diabetes, a patients risk for periodontal disease increases up to 30%. In these cases, Dr. Holley, Dr. Brittney, and Dr. Duncan can work with you to develop a more accelerated preventive dentistry plan to keep gum disease at bay.
If you are located in the Austin, Round Rock and Georgetown, Texas area and you would like to improve your smile for any reason, contact us today to schedule a complimentary cosmetic dentistry consultation.
What Our Patients Are Saying
Monica and Elizabeth made cleaning and x-RAYS tolerable. We laughed the whole time. Dr Mark was clear and concise. Everyone there has a great sense of humor. I hate going to the dentist but this trip was my best experience to date.
Friendly staff, exceptional patient care
The office is well-appointed, relaxing and the staff treat everyone like family. It's also nice to not feel 'judged' when my dental status is not textbook. Never had a dentist before that didn't give me the hairy eyeball over not flossing every day. I like their holistic approach to health, not just teeth.
Aesthetic Dentistry was professional and accommodating for a dental emergency I experienced. From Emily to Hannah to Dr Duncan I was extremely impressed with not only the customer service but the professionalism and the empathy for my work schedule. Their dental techniques are the best available providing a seamless and pain free experience. I HIGHLY recommend their practice!!
A++. Lovely people in this practice, true gentle dentistry and care. Would recommend anyone, especially someone who hasn't been to the dentist in a while and is nervous. Doctor personally calls his patients the evening of your appointment to follow up. 😎
