South Huntington Gum Disease

Periodontal disease occurs when dental plaque is allowed to accumulate around the teeth and gums. Without a daily routine of proper brushing and flossing, the plaque migrates beneath the gumline, slowly hardening into a rock-like substance called tartar. The first stage of periodontal disease is gingivitis, which is characterized by bleeding when brushing and gum inflammation. While periodontal disease is a progressive condition, with professional care and a renewed commitment to oral hygiene, its gingivitis can be reversed. To treat South Huntington gum disease in this early stage, a series of deeper cleaning is often prescribed. At Dentistry by Design, P.C., we are experienced in treating all stages of gum disease. As a state-of-the-art dental care provider, we also offer advanced laser dentistry services to treat periodontal disease. Dental lasers provide the most precise and gentle care, targeting damaged or diseased tissue with the ultimate exactitude, while promoting quicker healing and recovery times.

At Dentistry by Design, P.C., we have established ourselves as a leading provider of care for South Huntington gum disease as well as a comprehensive selection of dental services designed to meet the needs of every member of the family.
