Gum Disease Treatment on Broadway, Queens

Prevent the leading cause of tooth loss

Deep cleanings in Astoria, Queens

Taking care of the gums and teeth are both important aspects of maintaining good oral health. Without healthy gums, your dental health is at risk. Rampant gum disease can eventually have a negative impact on the health of other parts of the body and have far-reaching effects beyond oral health. Unchecked bacterial development in the mouth can cause gum disease and tooth loss.

Plaque buildup at the gum line is the first sign of gum disease. The buildup of this plaque causes gums to become sore and irritated. If you experience bleeding during brushing or flossing, you may have gum disease in its early stages and should take action to stop it. Your gums may be sore at this point, but they are still healthy and have not deteriorated yet.

Early detection of gum disease is crucial. If left untreated, it can result in levels of damage that are irreversible and have a lifelong harmful influence on the patient’s mouth. After gingivitis, periodontitis is the next stage of gum disease. At this stage, gums start to peel away from teeth during the periodontal stage of gum disease, creating tiny pockets where food can collect and cause decay. As a result, the decay spreads deeper and deeper, weakening the bone and tissue supporting the teeth and creating a sort of snowball effect. The teeth could potentially totally fall out after becoming loose from the jaw.

In adults, periodontitis is the main cause of tooth loss.
