Glendale Dentist Dr. Donald Wilcox and his entire staff recently completed an advanced and extensive upgrade of our hygiene prevention program and treatment for gum disease. Kim Miller from Inspired Hygiene led the training in our Glendale dental office.
While we have always known the damaging impact bacteria in the mouth can have on the health of teeth, gums and bone, recent medical literature continues to point to the dramatic connection between the bacteria in the oral cavity and overall systemic health. For instance, periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults.
But what is becoming more clear is the connection these same bacteria have on our overall health.
At Desert Smiles, we want our patients not only to preserve their teeth through preventive and corrective periodontal therapy. We also want to contribute to their well-being and longevity. So our hygienists employ the latest in diagnostic and treatment technology to provide Phoenix and Peoria patients with the utmost in periodontal health.
Having an infection in the gums of your mouth can and does affect your total body health.

Phoenix dentist Dr. Donald Wilcox and his hygiene staff can provide you with a complete periodontal assessment to insure you do not have a gum infection.
