Have you ever experienced periodontal, or gum, disease? Are you doing all you can to prevent it? Here at the office of Dr. Warren Baine, our Jericho gum disease treatment options are some of our most important and popular services. Periodontal disease is one of the most common dental issues facing adults today. The main cause of periodontal disease is bacteria buildup. There are all kinds of harmful bacteria like tartar and plaque present within our mouths each day. When these bacteria are not effectively removed through careful brushing and flossing each day, the bacteria can begin to build up and wreak havoc on your teeth and gums. The gums can begin to get inflamed and infected. If gum disease is left untreated, the gums can begin to detach from the teeth, increasing your risk for tooth loss, and the underlying bone in your jaw can begin to deteriorate as well. As you can see, periodontal disease has serious consequences and so should be prevented as best as possible through good oral hygiene habits.
During regular visits to Dr. Baine’s office, we will clean your gums and also check for signs of periodontal disease. You should also be on the lookout for symptoms like redness of the gums, pain in the gums, gum tenderness, and bleeding from the gums, and if you notice any, schedule an appointment with our Jericho gum disease treatment specialist as soon as possible. How Dr. Baine decides to treat your gum disease will depend on how severe your symptoms are. We may recommend that you come for follow-up visits for regular periodontal maintenance in order to halt the progression of your periodontal disease and keep your gums healthy.
