Gum disease dentist NYC Manhattan
When thinking about oral hygiene it's easy to focus on teeth and forget about all the other parts of the mouth that can be just as important both for your health as well as for maintaining that perfect smile. That's why we at Fine Dental place a strong emphasis on what is called "soft tissue management". Soft tissue management is all about the prevention and treatment of periodontal disease, better known as gum disease. Gum disease is no joke - for example, even minor bleeding of the gums may cause Heart Disease or other Systemic conditions. We at Fine Dental take periodontal health very seriously, and that's why we inspect your mouth for warning signs of gum disease on each and every visit to our office. Check back soon for our future posts in this series where we'll discuss more about the different ways we can help you prevent against and treat periodontal disease. And just a reminder, our office is open Monday through Friday 8:15am - 6:00pm.
