The Dangers of Gum Disease

Getting a teeth cleaning at least every six months from a dentist serving New York can be one of the most important steps you take to prevent gum disease. Teeth cleanings are excellent preventative care, as your dentist can remove hardened plaque that causes gum inflammation. Because plaque can build quickly on your teeth, though, you should always check for warning signs of gum disease. If you notice that your gums bleed often or appear red, see your dentist. When gum disease has the chance to progress, it can lead to gum recession, infection, and loose teeth. Extreme cases can even require tooth extraction if the bone and gums can no longer hold your teeth in place. In such circumstances, you may need to get restorative dentistry treatment such as dentures or implants so that you once again can have a complete smile.

Are you due for your next teeth cleaning? Then call Dr. Charles M. Marks at (212) 279-1232 to schedule an appointment. Our preventative care services can ensure that your teeth and gums stay free of tooth decay and gum disease.
