"Since Dr. Melissa treated my gums, I've noticed an improvement in my overall health."Our goal with non-surgical periodontal (gum) treatment at Family and Cosmetic Dentistry of Kokomo is to provide you with an alternative to conventional gum therapy. When a patient presents with periodontal disease we have many ways to get your teeth healthy again. We start with a thorough exam followed by home care instructions. Home care is the single most important step in treating periodontal disease. The secret to preventing tooth loss is to brush in the morning when you awake and in the evening before bed. Also, flossing every night before bed is critical.
