Periodontal Services at Union Square Dental
The dentists at Union Square Dental know that gum health is important, as is prompt treatment of any suspected disease. Untreated gum concerns can lead to bigger and more expensive problems down the road.
If you experience any of the following periodontal disease symptoms, call our office for a thorough evaluation and therapeutic intervention right away.
- Red, swollen, irritated gums
- A receding gumline
- Gums that bleed easily
- Bad breath
- Plaque or tartar buildup
- Loose teeth
- Food packing between teeth
Without proper treatment, periodontal disease can worsen, leading to tooth loss and supportive bone deterioration. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not something that better oral hygiene can cure. It requires professional, knowledgeable care from dental experts, like the ones here at Union Square Dental in NYC.
Periodontitis and Your Health
Did you know that proper care and health of your gums is vital to your overall health? The bacteria that causes your swollen, red gums may spread through your bloodstream, affecting your cardiovascular system as well as other parts and functions of your body. It’s a risk factor for major health conditions such as diabetes, obesity, sleep apnea, high blood pressure, infertility, and even premature birth. Erasing gum disease can boost your immune system and help you have a healthier life.
Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy
Enjoy better gum treatment and results with soft tissue laser therapy. Compared to traditional, more invasive surgeries, our advanced procedures offer improved results with a shorter recovery time. After cleaning the pockets just underneath your gum tissues, we apply our advanced laser device to eliminate the growing biofilm and promote gum tissue reattachment to your dental roots. It can even trigger new bone growth.
Routine dental exams and cleanings are an important part of gum disease prevention. As part of your exam, we thoroughly assess all areas for symptoms of gum disease, so that it can be treated before they cause tooth loss.
