The importance of periodontal charting

submitted by Dr. Michael Spadafora, D.D.S., Bucks County Dental Design

If you have ever found yourself in a dental chair, with your mouth open, while the hygienist uses an instrument to measure your gums, tooth by tooth, you are one lucky patient. You are lucky (or maybe just smart) because you have chosen an office that cares about your periodontal health.

The process described above is called periodontal charting. It is usually done by the hygienist while a staff member records the information in your chart. The hygienist will state numbers while going around each side of each tooth. These numbers are creating a “picture” of the health of your gums. Lower numbers are good; the higher numbers indicate potential problems (4 & 5) or existing problems (above 5).

Fitzpatrick announces service academy nominations

Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick (PA-8) joined Bucks and Montgomery county students, families and military veterans last month to announce his selections for military service academy nominations.

“Just over 238 years, not far from here, General George Washington led a committed group of volunteers across a frozen river in a daring attack. A move that inspires military minds and average Americans today – as much for what it inspired as what it accomplished,” said Fitzpatrick speaking to the group at the Bucks County Courthouse. “Tonight, we recognize this promising group of future leaders seated before us who have chosen to take up the same mantle carried by those patriots who fought for liberty with General Washington. As we gather here tonight to celebrate their achievements, I feel fortunate to have these moments to share with our future leaders.”
