Do you have bleeding or tender gums? These are the symptoms of gingivitis, which can progress to periodontal disease. This may result in potential bone loss and tooth extraction. Periodontitis, or Gum Disease, is the most common cause of tooth loss.
What can begin as a mild irritation of the gums can progress to serious infection and even tooth loss. Most of the early symptoms seem like no more than mild irritation. Early detection of these problems is vitally important. The truth is that only your dentist or a professional, like Dr. Oleg Klempner of Central Park Dental Care, can make this decision. It is vital to treat these problems early, and the best way today is Laser Dentistry.
Apart from tooth loss, Gum Disease can cause systemic problems within the body. Recent research has suggested that Gum Disease can contribute to Diabetes, heart disease, low birth weight and premature birth.
Gum Disease is caused when toxins that exist in the plaque on your teeth begin to separate the teeth from the gums. If untreated, these toxins can then form pockets that can become infected. Different levels of Gum Disease require different treatments. Gingivitis or mild irritation of the gums can be treated with a cleaning or deep cleaning. But once it progresses beyond this stage, Gum Disease begins to destroy the bones that hold the teeth. This results in loosening of the teeth and tooth loss. Once bone loss has occurred, the only treatment that was available until very recently was Periodontal Surgery. Periodontal Surgery requires the cutting and stitching of the gums, swelling and discomfort
Fortunately, there is now a revolutionary non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment option. This is Laser Dentistry. Central Park Dental Care is the premier provider of Laser Dentistry in New York City.
