Gingivitis Dentist

It’s not a pretty picture. According to the American Dental Association, three-quarters of all adults will be affected by some form of gum disease. In the Astoria area, you can turn to Dr. Clifford Degel of Astoria Dental Group as your resource in the prevention and treatment of gum disease.

Gum disease, technically referred to as “periodontal disease,” is a bacterial infection in the gums and supporting structures of the teeth. There are several stages and categories. The first stage is called “gingivitis” and is characterized by gum tissue that is red, puffy, and bleeds easily during brushing and flossing.

The next several categories include advancing stages of periodontal disease. In these stages, the infection can destroy the bone supporting the teeth, eventually causing tooth loss. But when you visit Astoria Dental Group regularly, we can help you avoid gum disease and its destructive results. And if you’re diagnosed with periodontal disease, Dr. Degel and his experienced team can affectively treat the disease, using the latest technologies to return your mouth to health.
