  • “ I have had the best experience with Dr. Domingue and his staff! He's kind, professional, and is extremely involved with every aspect of the patient care. His staff is one of the friendliest I have ever met. They don't only work in your mouth, they form real professional relationships. Dr. Domingue recently told me he was going to work with my time because, "you are way busier than I am". What a humble statement! I was so impressed when he recently shared that he was going on a mission trip to serve in Mexico. I think he is a gift to the lafayette community, and everyone needs to know.”

Periodontal Disease Instances Surpass Diabetes

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), more than half of all Americans do not receive regular dental care. Given that information, it should be no surprise to hear that instances of periodontal (gum) disease are on the rise. In fact, periodontal disease has surpassed diabetes in numbers of people infected in the US.

Additionally, scientists discovered links between periodontal disease and all of the top chronic diseases that cause death: heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer, and asthma. Exactly how each of these links relate to one another is still being studied, but what is known is that people with gum disease are more likely to die suddenly from one of these conditions.

At Drs. Smith and Domingue’s office, we take oral health seriously. Saving your teeth is an important reason and saving your life is even more important. That is why we utilize the expertise of our hygiene department combined with the latest techniques in periodontal treatments in order to identify gum disease and treat it effectively.

Our hygienists and dentists work together to diagnose early, treat immediately, and follow with effective aftercare routines with the intention of restoring your oral health swiftly before tooth and bone loss occur.

Learning the signs of periodontal disease is important because in its early stages, it may be reversible. Bleeding, pain, and swelling of your gums indicate a problem. Bad breath, sensitivity, recession, and redness may follow and symptoms can progressively worsen.

Studies show that the number one reason people stay away from the dentist is dental anxiety. We understand your anxiety and we treat each patient with care and compassion. We also address this problem head on by offering sedation to those patients who simply cannot relax on their own. We never want your anxiety to put your health at risk.
