The Importance of Periodontal Screenings

Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, can lead to significant health issues if it is not treated by a professional. As gum disease progresses, the underlying bone in your jaw begins to deteriorate and your gum tissues start to break down. This could cause the loss of your teeth. Avoid these dental complications by scheduling regular check-ups and periodontal screenings with your dentist.

You can learn more about the importance of periodontal screenings by watching this video. This dentist explains how your dentist will use a special instrument to measure the depth of the pockets between your gum line and teeth.

At Dr. Charles M. Marks, D.D.S. and Dental Associates, we are proud to offer a wide range of preventative dentistry services. Call our Manhattan office today at (212) 279-1232 to ask us about our cosmetic dentistry treatments, including dental implants.
