Adults are typically at an increased risk for periodontal disease. Beginning with the accumulation of dental plaque in the mouth, gum disease is caused when this plaque migrates down into the gums, hardening into tartar. If left untreated, gum disease continues to progress, wreaking havoc on your oral health, and eventually leading to the loss of teeth, gum and bone tissue. The first line of defense against gum disease is a consistent and proper oral care regimen at home. By brushing and flossing daily, you will be doing your part to prevent plaque from migrating down into your gums. Scheduling visits at your dentist in Commack at least every six months enables your oral care professional to supplement the job you do at home. With a professional cleaning and a careful examination of your periodontal health, your dentist can help prevent and even reverse gum disease if caught early on.
If gum disease has progressed to a more advanced stage, additional therapies may be necessary to rid your gums of harmful bacteria and tartar. Your dentist in Commack is equipped to provide gentle treatment with the utmost precision to help restore the health of your smile. If it has been six months or more since your last checkup, contact the office of Elisa B. Nelson DDS, PC to schedule your next visit today!
