TROY, Ill. – Periodontal disease starts with gingivitis and gum disease.

If not detected or treated, it leads to spaces between the teeth, causing them to be loose and infected. The key is regular brushing and regular checkups at Troy Family Dental in Illinois. They take a swab of the mouth and see what kinds of bacteria are present, then a treatment plan is put in place. Patients get to keep their teeth and most importantly, their whole body is healthier because it’s not fighting off infection.

Dr. Boatmen and his crew are highly trained and experts at sedation dentistry, so you don’t have to be scared to get your checkups!
