Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a common but serious condition that can lead to tooth loss and other significant health issues if left untreated. At Lakeview Dental in Lakeville, NY, Dr. Brian Hirschfield provides expert gum disease treatment tailored to halt the progression of the disease and restore your oral health.

Our approach to treating gum disease combines thorough diagnostics with advanced treatment options to effectively manage and reverse the effects of this condition. During your visit, Dr. Hirschfield will conduct a detailed examination to assess the health of your gums and determine the extent of the disease. Based on this assessment, a personalized treatment plan is developed, which may include non-surgical therapies like scaling and root planing or more advanced procedures if necessary.

Our Gum Disease Treatment Options Include:

  • Risk Assessment and Diagnosis: Early detection through regular check-ups to identify signs of gum disease before they escalate.
  • Scaling and Root Planing: A deep cleaning process that removes tartar and bacteria from below the gum line and smooths the roots to promote gum reattachment.
  • Antibiotic Treatments: Application of localized antibiotics such as Arestin to eliminate infection and reduce pocket depth.
  • Patient Education: Providing guidance on improved home care techniques to help manage gum health effectively.
  • Regular Maintenance Visits: Scheduled follow-ups to monitor the condition and prevent recurrence of the disease.
