New York City periodontal specialists Dr. Mark Schlesinger and Dr. Greg Diamond of the Diamond-Schlesinger Group say that general dentistry is not sufficient at preventing gum disease, bad breath and painful tooth decay. Although oral care such as daily brushing and flossing is imperative to dental, mouth and gum health, additional steps must be taken in order to sustain a health mouth that is free from disease.
Periodontal disease is a disease of the gums that everyone is at risk for. While certain patients, such as those who use tobacco products or prescription medications, pregnant women, and patients who suffer from certain chronic systemic diseases such as diabetes are more susceptible to periodontal disease, everyone has a risk of contracting dangerous periodontal diseases which can ruin the teeth and gums.
Dr. Diamond and Dr. Schlesinger recommend that parents begin enforcing periodontal health with their children at a young age to greatly reduce the risk of gum disease and other periodontal conditions. These New York City dental specialists warn that children whose parents, grandparents or other family members have periodontal disease are more susceptible to gum disease and have a higher liklihood of contracting the disease in the future. Additionally, children who have poor oral hygiene, do not brush their teeth regularly, or have diabetes are at a high risk of gum disease or other periodontal conditions.
Dr. Diamond of the New York City based periodontal specialist office, The Diamond-Schlesinger Group, warns that, women are also at a higher risk of later periodontal conditions including gum disease due to the high hormonal fluctuations that occur during puberty, pregnancy and menopause. Women should be focused on periodontal care and receive routine dental and periodontal check-ups.
Dr. Schlesinger and Dr. Diamond use laser technology and is the first periodontal specialist practice in New York City to offer painless dental procedures such as Waterlase Densitry. Patients no longer have to be afraid to visit the dentist or periodontal specialist as new laser technology allows for many different procedures to be performed with minimal pain and discomfort.
