The Soft Tissue Management (STM) program has been designed to treat and manage all levels of gum disease. It is a customized cleaning program designed to fit your specialized needs. Over 75% of the population has some stage of periodontal disease (gum disease). Most go unrecognized by the individual due to little personal warning signs and unlike the common cold, it will not go away without treatment. Most periodontal disease is found by proper diagnosis utilizing gum probing depths and x-rays in our thorough comprehensive examination process and maintenance recare visits.
If detected early the disease process can be arrested and the health of the gums and teeth can be maintained. If left untreated, periodontal disease is a serious infection. Evidence now links gum disease to a variety of health concerns including heart disease, stroke, diabetes, lung infections, pre-term labor, low birth weight infants and other degenerative diseases. The surgeon general states that you can not have good overall health without good oral health.
Our STM program first starts out by identifying if you have disease and at what stage or severity. Then we custom design a periodontal cleaning program just for you and your type of disease. By the utilization of new techniques and materials, we are now able to treat many disease types non-surgically to regain and maintain health.
Once the initial treatments are performed, continued care in our maintenance program and excellent home care are essential to ward off disease.
