Your teeth are not the only priority when it comes to your oral health. Your gums hold equal importance. Keeping them vibrant and at their best is the goal of our dental treatment Forest Hills NY. This includes both non-invasive as well as surgical solutions.
Dental plaque and its close relative, tartar, are the enemies of both your teeth and gums. They erode your tooth enamel, and progressively irritate, inflame, and infect your gums. This can begin with simple and easy to miss symptoms such as reddened gums. That’s the first stage of gum disease, gingivitis. Our dental treatment Forest Hills NY is designed to stop gingivitis in its tracks and reverse any of its effects. At this point, gum treatments mean teeth cleanings; the same ones you get when you visit every six months for your dental checkup. However, if gingivitis advances to periodontitis, the later stage, you are likely to suffer signs that can range from receding gums and persistent bad breath all the way to the loss of vital gum and bone tissue and loose teeth. Our dental treatment will address that with a method known as scaling and root planing, which is essentially a much deeper cleaning, getting down to your roots so that the plaque and tartar can be removed. Periodontal surgery can be done in situations such as when your gum pockets are so deep that they are harboring plaque and tartar and causing you to experience recurring bouts of gum disease, or repairing a gummy smile. No matter what the circumstances are that lead you to needing dental treatment Forest Hills NY, you can depend on Dr. Griesner.
While it’s on your mind, this is the perfect time to contact our office to schedule an appointment for yourself. Your gums deserve the high level of care that your teeth get.
