Why is Early Detection of Gum Disease Important?
Early detection is crucial for effectively managing gum disease. When caught in its initial stages, gum disease is easier to treat and less likely to lead to severe complications like tooth loss and systemic health issues such as heart disease. Your Westchester dentist, Dr. Brisman, uses advanced technology to diagnose gum disease in its earliest stages, providing you with the best chance for successful treatment.
Signs You May Need Periodontal Care in Westchester
If you experience any of these symptoms, it’s essential to consult a Westchester dentist for periodontal care as soon as possible.
Causes of Gum Disease
Gum disease can be caused by various factors, including poor oral hygiene, smoking, and underlying health conditions like diabetes. Understanding the causes can help you take preventive measures to maintain optimal gum health.
Our Periodontal Services
We offer a range of tailored periodontal treatments, such as:
- Scaling and Root Planing: This deep-cleaning procedure removes plaque and tartar from below the gumline and smooths the roots of your teeth to encourage gum reattachment.
- Gum Grafts: For patients with receding gums, a gum graft can restore a healthy gumline and protect exposed tooth roots.
While Dr. Brisman can handle early stages of gum disease at our Westchester location, more advanced cases may be referred to our specialized periodontist at our Scarsdale location.
