If your gums become unhealthy, you are subject to one or more of a variety of unpleasant and uncomfortable symptoms, but the worst outcome of all is when your gums are no longer strong enough to act as the dependable foundation for your teeth that they are designed to be. Here a PresiDental Care, we give your gums the necessary attention to ensure the best chances for a high degree of overall oral wellness.
Gum disease is the irritation, inflammation, or infection of your gum tissue that is caused by the bacterial acids in dental plaque and tartar. Our Rego Park periodontal treatment is a big help in reversing the effects of gum gum disease, whether mild or severe. The first stage is called gingivitis, and it is associated with irritation and redness. You may or not be aware of it, and there are times when you are first alerted to it when diagnosed as part of a twice-yearly oral examination. At that point, all you will require is a teeth cleaning, the same one you get at any visit for a checkup. In more stubborn cases, you might need a second cleaning to fully stop the progression of gum disease, but that’s a lot simpler and easier than what happens with periodontitis, the advanced stage of gum disease. It can occur over time, as in the chronic variety, or more quickly, such as with the aggressive type. In addition, underlying conditions, such as diabetes or heart disease, can accelerate the progression of gum disease. At that point our Rego Park periodontal treatment is a deeper cleaning called scaling and root planing, which gets right down to the roots.
If you do not get our Rego Park periodontal treatment done in a timely fashion, you could be subject to the loss of gum and bone tissue, and loose teeth. You may even require periodontal surgery. So contact us right away to set up an appointment.
