Once your primary periodontal condition is treated by our doctors at the Ueno Center, our OWD’s highly skilled dental therapists are committed to helping you keep your oral health stable and well-maintained. With all of the confirmed links between oral health and systemic diseases like stroke, diabetes, pregnancy complications, and heart attack, the Ueno Center wants to ensure that your oral health is pristine in order for you to be healthier overall – Your WELLNESS.
If you currently suffer from gum (periodontal) disease, your consultation appointment will begin in our Oral Wellness Department. Our Wellness therapists use multiple tools to assess your current condition comprehensively that will likely include a health history, specific oral measurements, digital imaging, and salivary testing. We use the latest technology from Oral DNA in order to best understand your condition. Just as a medical doctor uses blood tests to determine health measures, we use saliva tests to determine your best treatment. We consider the treatment and management of your periodontal disease a team effort. Ueno Center is committed to being your partner in keeping your teeth, gums, and overall health the best it can be.
Once all the needed information is gathered, we will tailor the best treatment plan to help you achieve optimal gum health, and therefore overall health. This treatment plan will include surgical and non-surgical procedures to stop disease and oral hygiene methods to manage your health afterward. Since gum disease can only be managed and not cured, our OWD will continually monitor for any future recurrences so that it can be addressed early. This will require a lifetime partnership between you, your general dentist and our Wellness therapists.
