Dr. Malki: We put a strong emphasis and focus on the health of our patients' gums because the gums really are the foundation for everything. If the gums are not healthy, eventually, teeth will be lost. Elisa: We do a thorough periodontal exam in each and every patient because we want the patients to know that it's not just the teeth that are important, it's the whole mouth; it's the supporting structures of the teeth. Dr. Malki: Our hygienists in the office here are all highly trained and educated in treating periodontal disease. Elisa: We're very good at teaching patients home care, because it's not just about coming in to the dentist every 3 months or every 6 months and have your hygiene visit. What's even more important is what you do at home. We stress that to the patient very much, that the outcome of their treatments that they receive here depends on how well they follow their home case regimen.
