Gum Disease Therapy in Flushing
Effective Periodontal Treatments
Gum disease affects nearly 80% of the U.S population and is considered a "silent" disease since early warning signs often go undetected. If left untreated, it can lead to more advance stages of infection, resulting in not only issues with your oral health, but it puts you at a higher risk for contracting harmful conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, strokes, and other common complications. Routine check-ups at our Flushing office can save you the headache of expensive dental procedures later down the road.

Common Symptoms of Gum Disease
The most common symptoms of gum disease include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Inflammation in the gums
- Bleeding while brushing or flossing
- Shifting and loose teeth
- Receding gums
- Persistent bad breath
- Mouth sores
The Cause and Effect
Generally, patients have the most issues with severe plaque which is a sticky, colorless film made up of toxic bacteria. The more bacteria that forms in the tooth and gums, the more it spreads and causes damage.
There are other factors that can trigger gum disease, including:
- Poor oral hygiene
- Lifestyle choices
