In Brooklyn, there’s no reason to suffer from the often devastating consequences of untreated periodontal disease. Your periodontist is trained to not only help you prevent gum disease but to also treat it in its earliest stages. Periodontal disease can be treated successfully when you visit your family dental specialists in Brooklyn, NY Alex and Igor Khabensky DDS.
Your family dentist is also a periodontist — a dentist specializing in the prevention, diagnosis, treatment of gum disease and high-quality periodontal services. Oral inflammation is another area that a periodontist treats, as well as pulling teeth and preparing your bones and gums for surgical procedures.
A periodontist trained in cosmetic dentistry keeps up with the latest dental technologies, such as laser gum treatment, a cutting-edge procedure that allows your general dentist to remove infected gum tissue painlessly. Plus, you’ll appreciate a periodontist who also received extensive training in implants.
Gum Disease Basics
Periodontal disease refers to bacterial infections in the supporting tissues around your teeth. While the most common form of disease occurs in your gums, it also can be present in:
- Your jaw bone
- The tissue covering your teeth roots
- Periodontal ligaments
The earliest stage of periodontal disease is called gingivitis. It refers only to a mild condition when bacteria inflame your gums. More advanced conditions treated by your periodontist in Brooklyn affect the tissues and structures supporting your teeth.
