The best dental care "total package" I have experienced! And I am old! From the front desk, to the dental hygienists, dental assistants, and dentists, everyone shows kindness, a caring attitude, professionalism, and skill. Wonderful place.Jeanne W.
Friendly staff, good doctors. They keep the patients involved in the process. Sitting in a dentist chair can be unnerving but here you can look out and see the horse farm and lots of nature. This is a calming environment. This is a class act dental practice.Clare W.
The best three doctors this girl has ever had the pleasure of working with! Amazing team of fine young ladies, they show compassion and are always on top of the updated dental knowledge! Great place!Jlee C.
The care received here is the best ever. I have never ever been associated with such a kind caring and professional office such as this. They are above and beyond any. I love you all!Peggy S.
I've experienced routine cleaning, crowns, and a root canal and they've all been handled professionally and with great care for how I was feeling during the procedures.Rich A.

Gum Disease in Chambersburg PARecognize the Warning Signs of Gum Disease

Gum disease can affect anyone. Neglecting to floss and brush can quickly result in bleeding gums and inflammation due to an overgrowth of bacteria in the mouth. If you have noticed these symptoms, you may be in the initial stages of periodontal disease, known as gingivitis. Once it progresses to periodontitis, you may experience halitosis, receding gums or wider periodontal pockets. It is important to seek treatment as soon as you notice the signs of gum disease to ensure that you preserve your smile and your overall health. Unfortunately, gum disease can make you more likely to develop the following:

  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Diabetes
  • Kidney disease
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Memory loss

Treating Your Gums and Preventing Infection

We treat your periodontal infection with scaling and root planing, a non-surgical treatment similar to a deep cleaning. This allows us to clear away the bacteria and restore the health of your teeth and gums. In order to prevent future overgrowth of bacteria, Drs. Fulton and Sargent recommend periodontal maintenance visits. These appointments are scheduled more frequently than your regular dental cleanings and focus upon removing bacteria and plaque that build up beneath your gums. Our patients who have been treated for periodontal disease benefit greatly from regular periodontal maintenance visits.
