Gum Treatment in Downtown Manhattan

Gum Treatment in Downtown Manhattan

Gum disease can contribute greatly to tooth loss so gum treatment in downtown Manhattan is extremely important to residents of the area. Gingivitis, the mildest and most common form of gum disease occurs when plague and bacteria begins to infect the gums surrounding the teeth. This causes inflammation of the surrounding tissue, which begins to separate the gums from the teeth forming deep pockets. Eventually, the inflammation will cause the body to respond to the point where the separation of tooth, gum and bone becomes so great that the teeth become unstable and may fall out.
Gum treatment in lower Manhattan is recommended by Dental Specialty Associates every six months as a preventative and remedial measure. A periodontal cleaning can be performed as part of a regular prophylaxis or alternating with it. During the periodontal phase of the cleaning the hygienist scales the areas above and below the gumline to remove the plague and tartar that has built up. In patients that have already begum to show signs of gingivitis it is particularly important to thoroughly clean the area below the gumline. Our practice may also perform root planning on those patients who deep pockets exceed a certain measurement. The area along the tooth’s root is cleaned of bacteria and then smoothed, bacteria is particularly dangerous to those with existing periodontal disease. Periodontal cleaning alone will not remedy advanced gum disease but is an important procedure in keeping its advancement in check.

A cyst is technically defined as a fluid-filled sac or pouch, but it also can refer to another abnormal growth that can vary in its form. For example, an irregularly shaped patch of skin can also be treated as a cyst.
