When it comes to your dental health, it helps to remember that there is more to it than just your teeth. When you visit the dentist, they check your teeth, but they also take a look at your entire oral cavity as well. One of the most overlooked aspects of dental health is gum health, and our dental team here at Leeman Dental can provide you with the Port Washington periodontics and periodontic care you need to restore and improve your gum health.
Here at Leeman Dental, our dentist Dr. Steven Lee has been providing the local area with the best dental care for decades now. Dr. Steven Lee is an experienced Prosthodontist with extensive specialty training in cosmetic dentistry, offering restorative dentistry treatments, removable dentures, dental implants, preventative dentistry and even Port Washington periodontics. Periodontal care encompasses all things relating to gum health. Gum disease often goes overlooked, but it can actually cause a great deal of damage to your oral health as well as the overall appearance of your smile. Early stage gum disease is more commonly referred to as gingivitis, and some of the symptoms include red, swollen, tender and sometimes bleeding gums. At the absolute earliest stages, teeth cleanings can help treat gum disease before it gets worse, but more intensive cleanings and care may be needed as the condition develops. Other procedures include periodontal cleanings as well as gum reattachment surgery to help restore health and reverse the effects of gum disease before severe tooth decay or bone loss occurs. With routine visits and multiple treatments, Dr. Lee can help you overcome your gum disease and offer you the periodontal care required to restore your oral health.
