Keeping Your Gums Healthy at Our Liverpool, NY Office
Your periodontal – or gum – health is vital. A large percentage of all adults have gum disease, and this problem is the chief cause of adult tooth loss in the United States. Additionally, gum disease can contribute to widespread health problems like vascular disease and diabetic complications.
We have you covered at Today's Dentistry with non-surgical periodontal treatments to preserve your oral and overall health.
What Causes Gum Disease?
There are many possible causes of gum disease. These reasons include inadequate oral hygiene, stress, systemic conditions like diabetes, hereditary factors, tobacco, teeth grinding, and the hormonal changes that come with pregnancy and menopause.
How Does Today's Dentistry Treat Gum Disease?
Regular cleanings and examinations are sufficient to control gum disease in many patients. If you have more advanced gum disease, you may need a deep cleaning called a scaling and root planing.
If you have noticed gum bleeding, pain, or swelling, it’s important to call us at (315) 451-7890 right away.
