Dentist in Great Neck
For patients who are suffering from periodontal disease, our dentist in Great Neck
recommends treatment in an either surgical or non-surgical manner. Periodontal disease can range from mild to severe, and treatment depends on the individual and how at what level their gum disease has progressed. Non-surgical periodontal treatments can include a deep cleaning, root planing and scaling which are methods that get deep under the flaps of the gums to get into the bacteria with that hides in the pockets of the teeth.
Surgical methods involve methods in which we get underneath and peel away the flap of the gum and then surgically remove the bacteria. Gum disease can be fought with proper brushing and flossing and regular oral hygiene care methods on a daily basis. Patients should make sure that they floss and brush as well as come into our offices each year for a cleaning. Periodontal disease is a common gum problem that many people suffer from. Annual cleanings can help ward off periodontal disease and other gum problems. Some of the causes of gum disease are improper care of the mouth. Over time plaque and tartar build up, which can cause bacteria that eats away and contributes to gum disease such as gingivitis. Gum disease can also be hereditary. If you have a family history of periodontitis or gingivitis, it is possible that you may also be at risk. Our dentist in Great Neck
can tell you more after a comprehensive exam.
