Dr. Christopher Port

Common periodontitis treatment for Arden area patients

Dentist for Quality Dental Care Treatments near me in, Asheville NC

Dr. Christopher Port of the Asheville Smile Center is dedicated to assisting patients in and around the Arden area with the treatment of conditions such as periodontitis. When this disease occurs, it is often due to poor oral hygiene. Patients who do not regularly brush and floss their teeth may be at risk, as well as those who do not see their dentist at least twice a year. Professional cleanings and education can go a long way in helping patients avoid the development and progression of gum disease, also referred to as periodontitis.

This condition starts as gingivitis, in which the gum tissue may become inflamed, sensitivity may occur, bleeding may happen when brushing and flossing, and bad breath may be difficult to control. When this is noticed, patients are encouraged to visit Dr. Christopher Port as soon as possible for a proper diagnosis and to develop a treatment plan to protect the smile from the later stages of periodontal disease.

When this condition occurs, it is important for patients to seek periodontitis treatment. Treatment may be a simple cleaning or a more invasive scaling and root planing procedure. Sometimes, surgical treatments are necessary for more severe cases. Patients who visit Dr. Christopher Port for a diagnosis are informed as to the many methods of treating the condition and improving the smile. In most cases, non-surgical methods are used unless necessary for patient comfort.

5 Dentist Asheville - 5 Star Review
Lisa Santiago Linger
Best dentist experience I've ever had! Everyone is incredibly nice and personable. It's evident that this isn't just work for the employees, but an enjoyable place to be. I was very impressed with how well they communicated with one another and worked diligently to personalize the experience for me and other customers. I wasn't just another mouth to clean, but a person who they wanted to get to know, and I still came out of there with an exceptional cleaning and more knowledge about my dental hygiene than when I came in. I'm so thankful for their wonderful work and service, not to mention the two freshly baked cookies on my way out!
