General Dentistry Manhattan
Dr. Gorsky believes that routine preventive dental care is the foundation for lifelong oral health and plays an important role in reducing the risk of several dental health concerns such as gum disease. Routine visits enable he and his staff to monitor a patient’s oral health and offer conservative treatment options or additional at home care to maintain healthy teeth and gums between visits to their Manhattan dentist office.
A dental exam with Dr. Gorsky typically includes:
- Digital dental x-rays
- Intra-oral diagnostic dental imaging
- Screening for gum disease, tooth decay and oral cancer
- Occlusal analysis and examination of temporomandibular joints (TMJ)
During routine dental exams, Dr. Gorsky looks for any underlying dental problems that may compromise the results of any dentistry. A practitioner of complete dentistry, he understands and educates patients on the necessity of a comfortable, balanced bite for lasting dental health.
Preventing Gum Disease
The prevention of periodontal disease is an important part of keeping the teeth strong and healthy. Healthy gums are the supporting structure for healthy teeth. A thorough periodontal screening is part of every routine dental exam. Dr. Gorsky offers periodontal therapy for patients who have gum disease with the level of treatment depending on the stage of the disease.
Gingivitis: early stage gum disease can typically be treated with an intense cleaning procedure called scaling and root planing performed in our Manhattan dentist office.
Periodontitis: for advanced gum disease, Dr. Gorsky may refer to a local specialist to restore gum health.
When left untreated, gum disease can lead to complex dental problems or even tooth loss.
