What Is Periodontal Disease?

Periodontal (gum) disease is a condition of inflammation in the gums, which may result in critical damage to your mouth. There are several stages of gum disease, ranging from mild to severe. The first stage is gingivitis, which is brought on by a plaque buildup in the gum pockets. Without treatment, gingivitis can develop into the next stage called periodontitis, which impacts the fibers and bone that support your tooth roots. Advanced periodontitis is the final phase of periodontal disease, which can cause teeth to become loose or fall out. Maison BE provides both nonsurgical and surgical treatment options to address gum disease. Contact our office in New York, NY to schedule an examination with Dr. Ellen Katz or Dr. Bridget Glazarov.

How Is Gum Disease Treated?

Treatment for periodontal disease will be determined by the seriousness of the infection. For cases caught early, scaling and root planing (SRP) is usually done to clean out your gum pockets. In more serious cases, antibiotics may be prescribed in addition to multiple scaling and root planing treatments. Severe cases of periodontal disease will generally need a surgical procedure, such as pocket reduction or gum grafting. Based upon the stage of gum disease and your treatment plan, your recovery time could vary. You might need to schedule multiple appointments at Maison BE to completely address your gum disorder. After your oral health has been restored, you should continue to have routine dental exams and cleanings at Maison BE.

Seeing Dr. Katz and her caring staff makes going to the dentist almost palatable 🤪. Dr. Katz is kind, compassionate, and a very good dentist. She’s not going for the money grab and is conservative in her treatment. Would highly recommend this practice.
