Welcome to Our Dental Blog
Hello, and welcome! We are excited to announce the launch of the official Poulsbo Periodontics & Implant Center Blog. We will be posting news, tips, and other information pertaining to periodontics and dental health.
Dr. Hanson built our practice on the idea that we are there for our patients, and we want this blog to be an extension of that principle. We hope you find our posts informative and entertaining.
Thank you again for checking out our blog. Here is to your best oral health!
Dr. Wesley Hanson provides various gum disease solutions, including the traditional teeth scaling and root planing procedure, but he tries to avoid using periodontal antibiotics until they are absolutely necessary.
Gum disease affects half of all adults in the United States and can cause tooth loss and other health conditions if left untreated. Because the earliest gingivitis treatment possible is usually the best gum disease treatment, it is important to look for the signs of gum disease.
There are two procedures which Dr. Wesley Hanson of Poulsbo Periodontics & Dental Implant Center can provide to restore an entire arch of missing teeth: All-on-Four® and implant-supported dentures. Both treatments are similar in that they consist of dental implant posts placed to support an entire arch of prosthetic teeth. Therefore, it may be difficult to tell which procedure would best serve your teeth replacement needs.
