Have Bleeding Gums? You may have Periodontal Disease | Midtown, NY

Do you have bad breathe, sensitive teeth and bleeding gums? You may have periodontal disease. There are two forms of periodontal disease: gingivitis, an inflammation of your gums caused by plaque, and periodontitis, a more advanced version of gingivitis that results in a gap between your teeth and your gums. Periodontal disease, when caught in the gingivitis stage, can be treated and, in the future, prevented. Periodontitis, on the other hand, is more difficult to treat and, due to the gap between the teeth and gums, may cause your teeth to become loose and fall out.

Untreated periodontal disease can lead to tooth loss. If you think you have periodontal disease make an appointment today with New York Dentist Dr. Doris Girlado DDS, 212-750-4590. Visit her website and book an appointment online at www.newdimensiondentistry.com.

Children learn dental hygiene from their parents and family members. Keeping your teeth and gums healthy is something everyone in your family should be involved in.

Family and pediatric dental care is very important and Dr. Doris Giraldo in New York, offers a general routine that each member of the family should follow.

  2. Do not use toothpaste on a child younger than 2 years old.
  3. Do not let your baby fall asleep with a bottle. This leads to what is called “baby bottle tooth decay.”
  4. Take your child to the dentist regularly starting at 1 year of age.

Teenagers

  2. Floss at least once a day.

Cosmetic Dentistry | Repair Your Smile | New York, NY

Bonding is a great way to repair your smile if you have chipped or broken one (or more) of your teeth. Bonding is a process of directly applying a tooth-colored composite to your tooth. Once the composite is applied, cosmetic dentist Dr. Giraldo DDS will sculpt and shape it to make a perfect looking tooth. A high-intensity ultraviolet light is then used to harden the composite and is finished off by a fine polishing.

For more information on bonding or other cosmetic dentistry procedures, contact New Dimension Dentistry in New York, NY at 212-750-4590. Request an appointment online by visiting www.newdimensiondentistry.com.
