If you’re experiencing symptoms of gum disease, such as bleeding gums, irritation or swelling, you will most likely need to get a periodontal cleaning done. Periodontal cleanings are performed to treat all types of periodontal (gum) disease ranging from mild to extreme cases. Periodontal disease is caused when the sulcus, which is the pocket or space between the teeth and the gums, becomes filled with bacterial, plaque or tartar. This causes irritation to the surrounding tissues. As gum disease progresses, it can eventually cause damage to the bone that supports the teeth, which can lead to tooth loss. If you’re experiencing any symptoms of gum disease, you should see a professional periodontist, such as our expert periodontist near Lenox Hill, Mitchell J. Bloom, DMD, PC to be evaluated. Early diagnosis and treatment is always best.
