We are very serious about periodontal disease at the dental practice of Nicholas Manos, DDS, PC, and we are happy to provide periodontal evaluations and treatment in Massapequa, New York, to keep your health in tip-top shape.
Your periodontal exam will involve your dentist checking the health of your teeth, gums, and bone structure. Your dentist will also examine the amount of plaque present on your teeth, evaluate the position of your bite, and identify all of your risk factors.
Periodontal disease is a health condition where plaque and tartar builds up inside your mouth and attacks the gums. The inner layers of the gums slowly move away from the teeth, making them look longer than natural. Toxins and poisons are then released and they begin to attack the bone, breaking and fracturing the structure. As the bone withers away, your teeth begin to fall out and infections begin to form.
We offer non-surgical treatments to those who have periodontal disease, which include: professional cleanings and scaling and root planing techniques. These methods are both great ways of removing plaque and tartar from your teeth by scraping and smoothing the tooth.
We care for you and your oral health, and we hope to catch this health condition at the early stage of development. Do schedule an appointment with your dentist, call our office now and begin your periodontal evaluation and treatment!
