Our dentist in Jackson Heights recommends that patients have regularly scheduled exams and cleanings to keep their gums healthy. During a regular exam, Dr. Sood will be able to determine if any gum or dental problems are developing. A teeth cleaning every six months will also go a long way toward ensuring your gum health. During a dental cleaning, tartar, plaque and bacteria are all removed from your teeth. This will keep deep pockets from being formed, and keep infection from forming in your mouth. If Dr. Sood sees that gingivitis, a precursor of gum disease has developed, he may recommend that you have several dental cleanings over the next few months. These treatments are generally all that is needed to keep gingivitis from turning into gum disease. Should Dr. Sood see that you do indeed have gum disease, he may recommend a periodontal scaling and root planing treatment. This treatment is like a deep cleaning for the pockets of the gums. It is done using local anesthesia and you will remain perfectly comfortable during the treatment. If you would like to have an appointment with Dr. Sood, contact us today.
