Lenox Hill Gum Treatment
Gum disease progresses from an early stage to a latter one, and with timely action, you can stop it from advancing and, in fact, reverse its effects entirely with normal routine care. However, when it has resulted in symptoms that are more severe, the need for more complex treatment is typically urgent. That's when we provide our periodontal deep cleaning.
It is the effects of plaque and tartar that lead to gum disease. Gingivitis is the early stage, and in many cases, the mild signs it yields may not even be noticeable to you. It's often just redness and minimal irritation. The good news is that at that point, Our Lenox Hill gum treatment
will consist of a standard cleaning, one which is not all that different from the dental cleaning you get when you have a checkup every six months. It is not painful and it is very effective. The plaque and tartar at the center of the problem are eradicated, and your gums will begin to return back to their normal vibrant and pink color. In some more stubborn instances, a second cleaning could be required. If gingivitis is ignored, though, it may result in periodontitis, which has indications including receding gums, persistent bad breath, gums that bleed when you brush, erosion of vital gum and bone tissue, and possibly loose teeth. For addressing it, our Lenox Hill gum treatment
is a deep cleaning called scaling and root planing. It requires that our periodontist get down to the roots to clean out the plaque, tartar, and bacteria. It's more invasive than a regular periodontal cleaning, but it is a must in order to keep your gums from atrophying and becoming so unreliable that your teeth begin to fall out.
Our Lenox Hill gum treatment
, whether early or later, is a key part of maintaining or recovering your periodontal wellness. Call us and schedule an appointment to have a cleaning as soon as possible.
