Following the latest update, the practice will use advanced periodontic procedures to treat gum disease. This common condition occurs when a build-up of tartar and plaque in the mouth causes gums, teeth, and surrounding bones to become infected and inflamed.
The CDC indicates that 47.2% of adults aged 30 or older have some form of periodontal disease, a figure that increases to 70.1% in people over 65. Symptoms may include swollen and bleeding gums, loose teeth, and tenderness while chewing, in addition to bad breath and tooth sensitivity.
“Holistic Dentistry of Port Washington can treat periodontal disease with non-surgical gum therapy. We also perform tests to evaluate related oral pathology”, a spokesperson for the practice said.
The chance of developing periodontal disease can be minimized through regular dental examinations and cleanings. The dentists at Holistic Dentistry of Port Washington will perform routine scaling, preventing tartar buildup by smoothing out rough patches on the teeth which would otherwise be a breeding ground for bacteria.
Non-surgical periodontal disease treatments include antibiotic, laser, and root planing therapies. In instances where the condition has been left unchecked and has escalated to periodontitis, a more serious form of gum disease, the dentists offer tooth extractions, implants, dentures, and partials, which restore proper function to the mouth and jaw.
