TROY, Mo. – A healthy mouth leads to a healthy body.

That’s why it’s important to take care of your teeth and gums and keep gum disease from happening. Gum disease is the silent killer of teeth; it’s known as periodontal disease, and it eats away at the bone holding the teeth in place.

If caught early, periodontal disease can be treated and cured. 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, and 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!
