The new announcement from Linderman Dentistry aims to help patients preserve their teeth by detecting gum disease early and providing the necessary treatment.

Periodontal refers to structures such as gums that surround and support the teeth. If inflammation in the gums is left untreated, it could lead to loss of teeth. It is estimated that nearly half of Americans above the age of 30 have a periodontal disease like gingivitis, with the number going to up 70% for adults older than 65.

Dr. Linderman screens patients for periodontal disease during every regular checkup. He closely examines the appearance of the gums, the supporting gum tissue as well as the surrounding bone structures. Dr. Linderman then recommends further action such as a procedure at his clinic or he may refer patients to a gum specialist for continuous treatment.

Individuals with swollen gums or noticeable tartar buildup can contact Dr. Linderman to avoid bone loss or gum tissue detachment. The dentist and his staff use the latest technology in the periodontal screening process and make every effort to restore the health of a patient’s gums through precise diagnosis and expert care.

Linderman Dentistry is a family-run clinic and is dedicated to serving the needs of individuals of all age groups in Carmel. It is a full-service clinic, with Dr. Linderman also specializing in root canals, fillings, dental crowns and teeth whitening. Since the onset of the pandemic, the clinic has taken extra steps to ensure that hygiene protocols are followed.

A satisfied patient said: “I have been going to Dr. Linderman for 20 years and I would not consider anyone else. He is knowledgeable, skillful, approachable, and caring. I find that he is timely and thorough in monitoring the health of my teeth and gums.”
