A Partnership for Healthy Teeth and Gums
Periodontal disease has the ability to be one of the most devastating dental diseases.
It can go undetected for many years, leaving patients unaware that they are progressively loosing the supporting structures around their teeth.
Those who have struggled with periodontal disease know that it can be a frustrating condition; if not taken care of correctly can result in tooth loss and carries with it a significant risk to one’s general health ( 2-3 times greater risk of heart attack and stroke).
We take great pride in the level of service we provide in the diagnosis and treatment of gum disease.
We are the only office in the Florida Keys with a phase contrast microscope that allows us to evaluate the living bacterial population in the gum crevices.
Our team stays current with the latest research and techniques in order to provide our patients with the most up to date information and skilled treatment.
For over 30 years Dr. Troxel and his team of highly trained professionals has been influencing the periodontal health of their patients and has provided hope and opportunity for dental success to countless members of our community. The following testimonial reflects one patient’s life changing experience:– I spent decades as an adult struggling with gum disease, dreading every visit to the dentist. I’d been told many times that I was “just one of those people who were predisposed to gum problems” and I believed it. When I moved down to the Keys and went to see Dr. Troxel, he quickly identified the specific factors that were contributing to my poor mouth health. Over the course of the next several months, he addressed each of these issues and ultimately restored my mouth to a state which would allow for healing. My hygienist worked with me to create a daily home-care regimen, and I followed it diligently. It all really paid off – I saw steady improvement and today I no longer suffer from active gum disease. My mouth is healthier than it has ever been. I can’t thank Dr. Troxel and his wonderful staff enough! With gratitude,
