Gum disease affects many Americans, causing red, inflamed, bleeding gums and even tooth loss. Preventing gum disease starts by practicing a daily dental hygiene regimen and supplementing it with regular dental cleanings. At Corbin Dental at Oyster Bay, we help Oyster Bay dental patients fight gum disease and experience relief from gum disease symptoms.
Whether your gums are just starting to feel more sensitive or you’re noticing bleeding when you floss, come in for an appointment and let our experienced dentists provide hassle-free treatment options.
What Is Gum Disease?
We commonly treat two types of gum disease frequently at our dental office:
- Gingivitis: A reversible form of gum disease that can cause sore gums that bleed when you brush or floss
- Periodontal Disease: A gum disease that requires professional dental treatment to avoid bone, tissue, or tooth loss
Many patients experience symptoms of gum disease like bad breath, loose teeth, and tooth sensitivity without realizing why. Gum disease causes your gums to recede, leaving your teeth’s roots at a higher risk for infection and decay. Common gum disease risk factors include:
- Poor nutrition
- Using tobacco
- Poor oral hygiene
- Hormonal changes
- Clenching your jaw
- Grinding your teeth
Gum Disease Treatment in Oyster Bay
While we can’t reverse tooth decay, we can treat early and late-stage gum disease, including with:
- Showing you how to brush and floss effectively
- Removing plaque and hardened tartar buildup from your teeth
- Reattaching receding gums to your tooth roots
Gum disease improves with proper treatment, and you can prevent it from happening at all with regular dental cleanings.
