Periodontal Surgery in NYC
Restore the Health of Your Gums
Dr. Jeffrey Rabinowitz provides periodontal treatment, which is vital when you are suffering from unhealthy gums and jawbone degradation. Most periodontal diseases are caused by bacteria and plaque that form on your teeth. The bacteria and plaque produce toxins that irritate the gums. This can lead to swelling, easy bleeding and redness. When the irritation continues, the gums separate from the teeth, which, if left untreated, deteriorates the supporting gum tissue and bone and leads to the loss of your teeth.
If you have severely unhealthy gums you could suffer from:
- Degrading appearance of your teeth
- Supporting bone wearing down
- Teeth shifting or falling out
- Difficulty chewing or speaking
- Swollen and red gums
Pain is often not associated with periodontal disease, which means you may be currently suffering from a periodontal disease and not know it. This is why it is imperative you visit a dentist at least twice a year to ensure your teeth and gums are healthy. Periodontal diseases affect the teeth, gums and jawbones of more than 80% of Americans by the age of 45.
About Bacterial Plaque
Bacterial plaque is a sticky, colorless film that consists of various types of bacteria. Over time, plaque sticks to your teeth at and below the gumline. It constantly forms on your teeth, even if you brush, floss and mouthwash regularly, as it forms within minutes after you clean your teeth. Eventually, it can harden and turn into a porous, rough substance known as tartar. Tartar cannot be removed without professional assistance. Bacterial plaque can create toxins that irritate your gums. If this irritation is ignored, your gums can separate from your teeth, which may cause periodontal pockets to form. Eventually, the gum tissue and jawbone that holds your teeth in place can deteriorate, which can ultimately lead to tooth loss.
