Periodontal (Gum) Disease Treatment – Sunnyside, NY

Stop the Swelling and Bleeding

Gum disease is one of the biggest threats to your teeth. It starts with gum tissues that are red, swollen, and bleed easily. Sooner or later, assuming no action is taken, the infection could reach the tissue connecting your teeth to your jaw and destroy it, leaving you with several gaps in your smile. Fortunately, if you get in touch with DentCare Dental Center as soon as you have reason to think you might have gum disease, Dr. Volker can quickly diagnose your case and devise a treatment to get rid of the infection.

Why Choose DentCare Dental Center for Periodontal (Gum) Disease Treatment?

Scaling & Root Planing

While cleaning every surface of your teeth is vital, the treatment for gum disease focuses specifically on removing plaque and tartar from the area around and underneath the gum line. After this process (known as scaling) is complete, we need to encourage the gums to reattach to the enamel while giving oral bacteria fewer opportunities to build up again. To do this, we smooth (or “plane”) the roots of the teeth in the affected areas.
