A healthy mouth is key to a beautiful smile. We offer gum disease treatment to help our patients achieve optimal oral health.
To maintain a healthy smile, patients must maintain healthy gums. Dr. Calian and the Smile Design Dental Spa team provide a full range of periodontal services and gum disease treatments to keep your smile beautiful and healthy.
Gum disease is caused by bacterial plaque and tartar accumulating up on the surfaces of your teeth, above and below the gum line. The buildup is the result of poor dental hygiene. However, while poor at-home care is the primary cause of gum disease, other health or lifestyle factors may also increase your risk of developing the condition. These factors can include family history, stress, smoking, tobacco use, certain medications, diabetes, or hormonal changes associated with puberty, pregnancy, or menopause.
If left untreated, gum disease has been linked to increased risk of diabetes, heart disease, cancer, pneumonia, and osteoporosis. It can also cause infections in your jawbones, leading to loosened teeth and permanent tooth loss. Early detection and treatment are critical to maintaining overall oral and physical well-being. Symptoms of gum disease include:

Be sure to schedule regular cleanings with your trusted Mount Kisco dentist. Cleanings every six months can prevent the development of plaque and tartar, keeping your smile healthy and reducing your risk of developing gum disease.
