Monroe, CT Periodontist, Dr. Richard Amato honors Dental Hygiene Awareness Month.

In recognition of dental hygiene awareness month, Dr. Richard Amato focuses on patient education with gum disease prevention and healthy tooth replacement options for optimal oral health.

The most important way to keep up with oral health is to brush properly and floss every day. Dr. Amato has pages on his website dedicated to prevention and periodontal maintenance, describing gum disease prevention techniques and the importance of good hygiene at home. Visit the website at

Without proper care, patients are at risk for tooth decay, gum disease infections, jaw bone deterioration and ultimately losing teeth. There is a correlation with gum disease and diabetes, heart disease and low birth weight babies. When preventive measures are no longer effective, Dr. Amato offers many different periodontal treatment plans to help patients return to their optimal dental health.

Gum disease patients have access to gentle laser gum therapy through Dr. Amato. The laser stimulates bone growth, which often deteriorates when disease is present. This bone regeneration helps to save natural teeth. For teeth that cannot be saved, Dr. Amato places dental implants. Connecticut Patients from Bridgeport to Shelton and Fairfield to Trumbull have easy access to this advanced dental technology with Dr. Amato.

Patients concerned about bleeding gums, bad breath, loose teeth and their oral health should contact Dr. Amato today for a consultation.
