Sometimes brushing and flossing is not enough. Many adults live day to day without realizing they have an infection of bacteria in their mouths. At Dr. Bash’s office we provide that best care and treatment for gum disease and bone loss. It’s called Soft Tissue Management (STM) Program!

The STM program is a non-surgical way, to monitor and eliminate disease before further destruction occurs. It is used to treat patient with gingivitis to moderate periodontal disease. Gingivitis is generalized inflamed tissues with bleeding, which is the first stage before periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is when the bone, that holds your teeth in place, begins to be destroyed.

The bacteria from the gum disease in your mouth has been proven to be able to travel through your whole body, within the blood stream. Gum disease has been directly related to serious chronic conditions like Dementia, Alzheimer’s, Stroke, Heart Disease, Respiratory infections, Diabetes, Oral, head and neck cancer, Pancreatic and liver cancer, pregnancy complications, Osteopenia, and Arthritis. The STM program will not only help your oral health, but also help maintain or prevent chronic conditions. Call our office today for a full exam of YOUR gums, it could change your life!
