Brooklyn NY, 06-DECEMBER-2014 – Wyckoff Family Dentistry and Dr. Ronald Rao, DDS, are pleased to announce that the clinic offers solutions for gum disease. Gum disease can be a problem which results in loosened teeth, bad breath and painful or inflamed gums. The bacteria which enter below the gum line can lead to serious health issues throughout the body. The Brooklyn NY Affordable Dentistry services are devoted to eliminating the causes of gum disease before they become more serious.
Red and swollen gums are a sure signal for the presence of disease due to bacteria along the gum-line. Gingivitis is the mildest form of the disease and periodontitis is a much more severe form. Four out of every five adults suffer from some form of gum disease. There are numerous therapeutic methods and products which can be applied to alleviate the pain and related symptoms.
The therapy for gingivitis usually consists of a thorough cleaning of the teeth. The patient is then encouraged to brush and floss daily to maintain a healthier condition in the mouth. Brushing should be done after each meal or snack and flossing preferably is done twice daily, morning and evening. This removes bacteria and food particles from between the teeth.
When the disease advances to the stage known as periodontitis, more advanced therapy is necessary. This might include root planing or scaling to get rid of the stubborn deposits which have built up below the gum line. The next level of therapy if non-surgical methods are not effective, may be to perform periodontal surgery (gingivectomy).
