Our onsite periodontist in NY, Dr. Kevin Loshak, can address all stages of gum disease, from encouraging healthy at-home gum cleaning habits to implementing advanced periodontal disease surgery. Symptoms of gingivitis are beginning signs of periodontal disease and are easily reversible with rigorous dental hygiene. Our periodontist in NY recommends at-home care, such as brushing and flossing multiple times a day, to avoid these symptoms: red, swollen, and tender gums that bleed. Should you have any questions about your dental health, or if these symptoms worsen to gum disease, our periodontist in NY can meet with you to discuss how severe your condition is and recommend an individualized treatment plan.

In addition to dental health, gum disease can affect your general health as well. Studies have indicated that advanced stages of gum disease actually increase the chances of developing heart disease. Periodontal disease is a bacterial infection that can potentially spread through the blood stream, causing a buildup of plaque and develop in other organs. Protect your teeth and your life by practicing daily dental hygiene and scheduling bi-yearly dental appointments with our periodontist in NY!
