Periodontal Disease NYC FAQ
Can you fix periodontal disease?
In the very early stages, periodontal disease may be treated with a professional dental cleaning. For more advanced periodontal disease a deep cleaning may be necessary.
What is the main cause of periodontal disease?
The main causes of periodontal disease are the accumulation of bacteria, tartar and plaque in, and around the teeth and gums. This occurs when one does not perform proper oral hygiene, and failure to have every six-month professional dental cleanings.
What are some of the early warning signs of periodontal disease?
Pain is rarely present in periodontal disease. The early signs of periodontal disease are:
- Bleeding gums
- Sore gums
- Loose teeth
- Tooth sensitivity
- Gum recession (shrinking gums with increased tooth root exposure)
- Bad breath
- Swollen gums
