Bayside Gum Disease

Contact Corbin Dental today to learn more about our dental services.

At every routine dental appointment, your Corbin Dental dentist will screen for periodontal disease (gum disease). Gum disease develops when a sticky substance called plaque is not routinely removed from your teeth. Plaque eventually hardens into something called tartar.

Plaque, and especially tartar, can lead to gum irritation and infections that cause damage to the soft tissues and underlying bone. Untreated gum disease can even lead to further complex dental concerns and tooth loss. Spotting this progressive disease early is pivotal to treating it with conservative treatment options.

Corbin Dental in Bayside, NY offers gum disease treatment that is effective and will quickly restore your oral health. Stop gum disease with effective treatments at Corbin Dental.

Stages of Periodontal Disease

Gingivitis is the early stage of periodontal disease that leads to red, swollen, irritated, and inflamed gum tissue. When your gums are like this, they bleed very easily often when brushing or flossing. Gingivitis is very treatable and usually due to vitamin deficiencies. So we like to treat it promptly to avoid irreversible damage.

When gingivitis is left untreated, it will progress into an advanced stage of periodontal disease called periodontitis. Here, there is usually some loss in the underlying bone. Deep pockets have formed along the teeth where the inflamed gums have pulled away from the teeth. Therefore, we stress treating periodontitis immediately. The longer plaque and tartar remain on the teeth, the more damage it will cause.

We typically see advanced periodontitis in patients who have not visited a dental office in many years and have severely neglected their oral health. In this stage, bone loss is severe, and very deep pockets have formed between your gums and teeth. A majority of the infected gum tissue naturally detaches from the teeth. If you reach this stage, tooth loss is likely.

The Warning Signs of Gum Disease

Not many people are unaware they have gum disease in the early stages. The best way to avoid this is with proper oral care at home and regular visits to our dental office. We will screen you for gum disease during every visit. At-home oral care includes brushing your teeth multiple times a day, and flossing in-between your teeth daily. If you notice any of the following signs of periodontal disease, please schedule a visit with Corbin Dental.

  • Receding gums
  • Red, swollen or sore gums
  • Bleeding gums
  • Sores or pus between gums and teeth
  • Halitosis, also known as constant bad breath
  • Dentures or dental bridges that do not fit comfortably

Gum Disease Treatment in Bayside, NY

Treating your gum disease means regaining your oral health and preventing major overall health issues from progressing. Not many people realize periodontal disease can lead to stroke, heart disease, and diabetes. While a hydrogen peroxide rinse and attention to detail may help in the short-term, there is no guarantee that it will help long-term.

Our Bayside, NY dentist office offers the following bleeding gums treatment options:

Scaling and root planing: This is an intensive cleaning where your dentist will thoroughly clean all surfaces of your teeth. The goal is to remove all plaque and tartar from the pockets of the gum. This will prevent the bacteria from causing damage such as the gums pulling away from the teeth.

LANAP®Laser Dentistry: LANAP is an FDA-approved treatment for periodontitis. Typically, a patient would need to undergo surgery at this stage of gum disease. With the use of lasers, we only target diseased tissue. The LANAP protocol offers so many benefits including:

  • No cutting, therefore, no stitches
  • Less pain, swelling, and bleeding
  • Less sensitivity post-procedure
  • Faster healing time

Our dentist will evaluate the state of your gum disease and recommend the best method of treatment. We are able to treat very early signs of gum disease with antibiotic rinses and extra care. However once it sets in, you will need more intensive treatments. Call us or schedule an appointment online for a gum disease evaluation to stop bleeding gums today.
