11357 Gum Disease

Did you know that periodontal disease is the most common cause of tooth loss among adults? When you allow dental plaque to accumulate in the mouth, it significantly increases your risk of developing tooth decay and gum disease. In the case of periodontal disease, as dental plaque is allowed to migrate beneath the gumline, it hardens into a rock-like substance called tartar. While normal brushing and flossing is usually enough to eliminate plaque, once it calcifies into tartar, it becomes too difficult to remove on your own. Morevoer, since the progression of gum disease is often painless, there can be significant loss of bone tissue and gum tissue before you even notice a problem is present. For this very reason, routine checkups and care are essential. By monitoring your ongoing oral health and providing periodic cleanings and care, we can help protect the health of your smile. At the office of Eileen Morrissey DDS, our dentist is experienced in the prevention as well as treatment of all stages of 11357 gum disease. After conducting a comprehensive periodontal evaluation, we will prescribe a course of treatment that helps to reestablish the health of your gums.

After treatment, patients can help to prevent the recurrence of the condition with good oral hygiene habits and regular trips to their dentist. If you are suffering from 11357 gum disease or require treatment for any other condition, we encourage you to book an appointment today. With convenient scheduling options available, we will get you in to see us as soon as possible.
