If you are a patient in need of periodontal services, then Island Dental Associates in Franklin Square Long Island is here for you. We offer a wide array of periodontal services performed by Dr. Vikas Mittle, a Board-Certified periodontist.
If you are unsure of whether or not you should see a periodontist for your dental health, the following signs can be a good indication that you should.
Are your gums red or swollen? Do you notice blood when you are brushing or flossing your teeth? These are usually the very first signs that you may be experiencing gingivitis. Chronic bad breath and an unpleasant taste in your mouth can also mean that there is bacterial buildup in your mouth that needs to be treated before the condition can progress and cause more serious problems.
Receding gums are another sign that you should see the periodontist and you may also be experiencing loose or shifting teeth, and you may feel pain or pressure when biting down; this means that the gums may have receded further, and your root has become exposed. An exposed root will result in tooth and gum pain.
With periodontal services, you can have healthy gums and teeth for a lifetime, eliminate bad breath, fix any loose teeth, reduce bone loss around your teeth, and significantly improve your overall oral health.
At Island Dental Associates in Franklin Square Long Island, we offer our patients a variety of surgical and non-surgical solutions to their tooth trouble.
Some non-surgical treatment options include scaling root planning, maintenance, occlusal adjustments, and even Invisalign. We can also offer you a local antimicrobial treatment to help with the bacteria that may exist in the mouth, and we can educate you and help manage your periodontal disease.
Some surgical options include implants, gum contouring, bone grafting, sinus elevation, ridge augmentation, and extractions among several other surgical procedures.
Tooth loss can have a significant impact on your health and your smile and can even result in diminished confidence. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also say that half of all adults currently over the age of thirty are suffering from some form of gum disease. It is imperative that you take the time to schedule an appointment with our Periodontist today at Island Dental Associates, so we can evaluate the condition of your teeth and gums and find the best treatment plan possible to help restore your smile.
You no longer have to suffer from red, swollen, and tender gums and persistently bad breath. Come in for your evaluation, and we will examine your mouth, measure the size and depth of the gum pockets to help determine if there is an infection, and then we can start treatment right away. Even if you are not experiencing any dental issues, periodontal maintenance is also essential to maintaining your oral health. Regular and routine cleanings can help remove any stains and tartar from the surface of your teeth and can help keep periodontal disease and other issues at bay.
