Gum disease is a serious oral health issue that can have far reaching dental and systemic consequences. Gum disease can result in chronic bad breath, significant pain, and loose or missing teeth. It is also a risk factor in heart disease, respiratory problems, and hypertension, and has recently been linked to an increased risk for Alzheimer’s.

Peekskill dentist Dr. George Sepiashvili would be happy to discuss the best ways to avoid gum disease during your regularly scheduled general dentistry visits.

If you are suffering from gum disease, please contact Advanced Dentistry of Mohegan Lake or call (914) 526-2144 to schedule an appointment today.

Controlling Gum Disease

Avoiding gum disease through proper dental hygiene is always best, but when the problem arises, knowing how to control it can help prevent serious issues from occurring. Our Peekskill dentist can help you control gum disease through more frequent dental cleanings along with treatments such as laser gum therapy or scaling and root planing. These treatments are often incredibly effective at both controlling and eliminating gum disease. Which option is best for you will be determined during your periodontal therapy consultation.
