Excellent service and very professional. What truly counts for me is the way they treat people, the cleanliness of the dental office and the professional presentation of the staff and especially the doctor. I feel good indeed very good about recommending the doctor, as a matter of fact I have recommended the doctor to many of my friends. It is always a pleasure and the best part is that they adjust their hours to accommodate the patient, or at least in my personal case that is why I have kept the same dental office and the same doctor for so many years.

Periodontal Disease Miami - Right Quote
Dentists are committed to helping their patients avoid the development and progression of periodontal disease. Miami residents can visit Drs. Pasquier and the team at Miami Modern Dental to undergo regular examinations and treatments to protect themselves from periodontal disease, which is also commonly known as gum disease. Periodontal disease is a serious dental condition that can cause irreversible damage to a patient’s oral structure. It can negatively affect a patient’s teeth, gums, and bone. Patients will want to ensure that they take good care of their oral health to keep periodontal disease from developing.

Drs. Pasquier of Miami Modern Dental offer services to prevent periodontal disease and treat it. Periodontal disease is caused by inflammation from bacteria that build on the teeth from poor oral health care. It starts out as gingivitis. This is when the gums become inflamed, red or bleed. This is the point at which a patient needs to seek immediate dental attention. Gingivitis can be treated and reversed when diagnosed early. Patients can visit Miami Modern Dental to have a thorough professional cleaning. They may be prescribed antibiotics to reduce the inflammation and infection that has occurred.

If left untreated, gingivitis will advance to periodontitis, which can cause the gum tissues and bone to shrink. This causes pockets to form between the gums and teeth, which is the perfect spot for bacteria, plaque, and tartar to build and eat away at the natural tooth, gum tissue, and bone. Teeth can become loose from the lack of support of the bone and gums, and may fall out. This irreversible damage can only be addressed with restorations such dental implants, dental bridges, or partial or full dentures.

Patients are encouraged to take good care of their teeth to avoid periodontal disease. Miami patients can visit Miami Modern Dental at any time to for a proper diagnosis of periodontal disease when necessary, and can undergo treatments to help address the problems that develop. Patients should brush and floss every day, and maintain their regular dental appointments with Drs. Pasquier twice a year for an examination and cleaning. This can help prevent the onset of periodontal disease and assist patients in keeping healthy, beautiful smiles!
