Transforming Oral Health through Early Detection and Prevention

At Flatiron Dental, we're not just about routine treatments—we're pioneering a new era in oral health. We're thrilled to introduce Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT), a game-changer in the fight against gum disease.

Gum Disease's Impact on Oral Health

Gum disease is often underestimated, but its impact can be profound, ranging from mild gingivitis to severe periodontitis. In its initial stages, subtle signs like bleeding gums and mild inflammation may deceive individuals into downplaying the severity of the condition. However, periodontitis infiltrates supportive structures as it advances, creating pockets between gums and teeth. Without timely intervention, this can lead to various dental issues and foster infection growth, risking tooth loss and impacting broader systemic health. This underscores the need for comprehensive gum disease management. That's where CBCT plays a crucial role in early detection and intervention.

CBCT isn't just another X-ray—it's a technological marvel that gives us a 3D view of your teeth, gums, and jawbone with unmatched precision. This allows us to catch gum disease early and intervene before it becomes a severe problem.

The benefits of early detection with CBCT:

Precise Diagnosis: We can accurately pinpoint gum disease, leading to more effective treatment plans.

Minimized Invasiveness: Early intervention means less invasive treatments and less discomfort.

Comprehensive Treatment Planning: With a detailed understanding of your condition, we can tailor treatment to your needs for better outcomes.

Preventive Focus: By catching gum disease early, we can stop it and prevent it from worsening.

But CBCT is just one piece of the puzzle. General dentistry is crucial in proactive care, emphasizing routine check-ups and examinations to safeguard your long-term oral health. By combining advanced technology with compassionate dentistry, we're redefining what it means to care for your teeth.

Introducing Perio Protect

In addition to CBCT, we offer Perio Protect as an innovative treatment option for periodontitis. It provides a non-invasive and comfortable treatment option conveniently administered at home.The customized trays ensure that the medication reaches deep into the gum pockets where bacteria thrive, effectively targeting the root cause of the disease. By reducing inflammation and controlling bacterial growth, Perio Protect helps prevent further damage to the gums and surrounding structures, ultimately preserving the integrity of the teeth and supporting tissues.Additionally, this treatment can improve oral health, potentially diminishing the necessity for more invasive procedures. With Perio Protect, patients can enjoy a proactive approach to managing periodontitis, leading to healthier gums, fresher breath, and a brighter smile.
