Periodontal Disease and Dental Implants - Latest Techniques
What Sets Us Apart
Periodontitis & Gingivitis
There are two types of Gum Disease:
Gingivitis. This is the earliest form of problems with gum tissue. Plaque buildup at the gum line causes inflammation and some bleeding near the gums, and may lead to infection.
Periodontitis. This occurs when supporting bone and fibers around the teeth are damaged in this second-stage of periodontal disease, causing bone damage and loss.
Gum Disease Prevention
Visiting the dentist regularly for cleanings and exams is necessary for helping to prevent periodontal disease. Daily oral hygiene at home and away also is a vital part of prevention. Brushing and flossing will keep teeth clear of bacteria that can lead to plaque build-up, inflammation, infection, and the decay of your teeth.
WE PRIDE OURSELVES ON OUR STERILIZATION PRACTICES— WE HAVE ALWAYS MAINTAINED A HIGH-LEVEL OF HYGIENE.
However, because Covid-19 presents an unusual health danger, we are obligated to do as much as we can to protect the health, safety, and welfare of our patients, our staff, and our community.
On orders from Governor Andrew Cuomo, as a non-essential business, we must limit treatment solely to emergency care due to the Covid-19 pandemic. As of now, we are postponing elective care until we reopen for regular business.
