For those patients who suffer from gum disease, Dr. Erez is able to evaluate the extent of the condition and recommend proper home care and treatment. Untreated gum disease can lead to tooth loss, but by tracking your gum and bone levels with each visit to our hygienist, Dr. Erez is able to intervene if a problem is detected and recommend treatment to stop the progression that can lead to additional bone loss and subsequent tooth loss. Bone loss also often leads to gum recession which can lead to sensitivity and decay at the root surfaces. Dr. Erez can discuss various options to replace the gum tissue that has been lost and recommend the treatment that is right for you to protect the teeth from further damage and also restore the youthful appearance of your smile.
