If gum disease ever strikes you or a family member, we can take some easy steps to quickly remove the problem-causing tartar from the roots of your teeth and infected gum tissue. In fact, Dr. Bram has invested in the most modern dental equipment, like lasers, to provide our patients with the best gum disease treatment options possible. Our Bayside office features a traditional CO2 laser, which has been used for decades in treating gum disease, as well as the award-winning Picasso diode laser. Next, we will perform a procedure called root planing which smooths the surfaces of your tooth roots to keep bacteria from collecting there moving forward. For more info about scaling and root planing, take a look at the video clip below that comes to us from the ADA. When it’s over you can call Dental Expressions at 718-395-5331 to schedule a future appointment in Bayside, NY.
