When you think of visiting your dentist, your first thought is likely about the treatment of your teeth. While the teeth are a large part of the equation, another important aspect of your oral health involves the softer tissues in your mouth. These parts of the mouth share the same environment with your teeth, but they don’t have the benefit of the enameled armor a tooth ideally has. This leaves these softer tissues a little more vulnerable to bacteria, plaque, tartar and other hazards. If you are looking for periodontics in Rensselaer, Indiana, Dr. Jordan Balvich offers several services to prevent problems and treat existing periodontal threats.
