Gum Disease Evaluation
Gum health is vital to a healthy body, mouth, and smile. Gum disease, or periodontal disease, stems from bacteria in the mouth and excessive plaque buildup. It is especially important to identify, monitor and treat gum disease early on as it can lead to tooth loss, and cause additional adverse health conditions. Aside from bad oral hygiene habits, many variables can contribute to excessive plaque buildup including hormonal changes, medications, and various illnesses.
Routine dental checkups include evaluating the health of your gums, so it is a good idea to keep those regular dental visits on the calendar. Our goal is to help you maintain optimal oral health. MSK dentistry’s staff will work to determine a customized general and preventative protocol to fit your needs.
