It is very important that your gums are kept healthy. This is because if you develop gum disease your tooth can become loose and fall out. Gum disease can also spread to other areas of your gums, and affect other teeth. And even more important, gum disease can be spread to other parts of your body, including your heart, and cause serious infection. For all of these reasons it is important that you have healthy gums. However, if your gums do have gum disease, there is no reason to despair. Gum disease can be corrected with periodontal therapy.

The type of gum treatment in Bay Ridge that will work best for you is dependent upon the extent of your gum disease. At our practice we will be able to evaluate the progression of the periodontal disease. We will then be able to recommend the best treatment. Periodontal disease occurs when the deep pockets between the tooth and gums is filled with tartar, plaque, bacteria and food debris. These materials all mix together and cause infection and damage to the gums. If left to go on long enough the jawbone will also become infected. If the damage goes down to the jawbone teeth can begin to loosen and fall out. At this point your options will most likely include scaling and root planing or bone surgery.
