Here at the office of Dr. Elliott Gutman, gum disease in Inwood is one of the most common dental issues that we treat. Gum disease, which is also known as periodontal disease, is a serious dental condition affecting large numbers of adults today. It is a condition that is caused mainly by certain strains of bacteria within the mouth. When bacteria like tartar and plaque are not properly removed they build up and begin to inflame and infect the gums. Some signs of development of gum disease include: redness of the gums, gum tenderness and pain, bleeding from the gums, persistent bad breath, the appearance of your teeth growing longer (this is due to gum recession), and more. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you may be experiencing early signs of gum disease in Inwood, and it is important that you schedule an appointment with Dr. Elliott Gutman as soon as possible. During your visit, Dr. Gutman will discuss your symptoms with you and carefully examine your teeth and gums to check for signs of gum disease in Inwood. Once a diagnosis is confirmed, Dr. Gutman will then recommend treatment options that are in line with the severity of your symptoms. For patients in the early stages of gum disease in Inwood, one or a few deep periodontal cleanings might do the trick and relieve your symptoms. For more advanced cases of gum disease in Inwood, more invasive services including surgical methods might be required. Therefore, it is always important to seek treatment at the first sign of the disease.
