Here at the office of Erica Kaplan D.D.S. DABP PC, we work hard to diagnose periodontal disease.

Though preventable, periodontal disease is very common in adults. Since people don’t take the time to brush and floss their teeth, bacteria and tartar build up.

Symptoms of periodontal disease can include red and swollen gums that bleed easily. Your teeth can become sensitive. You may be missing teeth. Bad breath is another symptom of periodontal disease.

We start by doing a thorough examination of your teeth, followed by x-rays to get a closer look. Probes can be used to look for any problem areas.

If you are concerned that you may have periodontal disease, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (631) 476-1700. We will get you in for an examination as soon as possible.
