Respected Lackawanna County Gingivitis Dentists Can Treat Your Gingivitis Symptoms

Losing your teeth to gum disease is not a natural part of aging. Red and swollen gums that bleed easily when you brush your teeth, receding gum lines and loose or missing teeth are all signs that you need to see a dentist. Regular care from Lackawanna County gum disease periodontist Dr. Joseph Kelly, Jr, along with good oral hygiene habits, can help your teeth last for a lifetime.

At Kelly Dental Care, we know the damage that untreated periodontal disease can do, including loss of teeth and bone. This condition can progress to serious periodontitis and has been linked to heart attack, stroke, and pregnancy complications. So it's our mission to help those suffering from gum disease through proven techniques that gently remove infected gum tissue and the bacteria causing the infection.

You can make an appointment by calling our friendly staff at (570) 587-4787 or by completing our easy online form. We're committed to providing you with quality, affordable dental care!

Take Advantage of Your Dental Insurance

If you and your family have dental insurance, you should take a couple of minutes to see what it offers. Many plans have a 'use it or lose it' provision that provides a certain level of care per calendar year.

Take advantage of it and save a lot of money in the long run by avoiding costly procedures that result from poor dental habits. Our friendly staff at Kelly Dental Care will be happy to answer all your dental insurance questions. Just give us a call at (855) 695-7452.

Dental Decay & Sealants

Dr. Kelly will tell you that regular brushing and flossing lowers the chance of your children developing cavities. However, sometimes good habits alone aren't enough. The most decay-prone areas of teeth are the grooves and depressions on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. These vulnerable areas require further preventive care. To protect kids' teeth from decay, a plastic-like coating called a sealant should be painted on the chewing surfaces of all the back teeth.

It's a simple process that's extremely effective: studies have shown that sealants can reduce tooth decay by as much as 90% to 100%. Please call Kelly Dental Care at (855) 695-7452 with any questions you may have about the benefits of using a sealant in preventing dental decay.

Soft Drinks Can Be Hard on Teeth!

From a dental point of view, there's nothing soft about so-called soft drinks. Sugar does not directly damage teeth. That happens when certain bacteria in the mouth release acids that eat into tooth enamel. These bacteria, however, need food to survive and refined sugar is a very potent source. What you eat, they eat. If not eliminated promptly, they hang around to do their dirty work.

The real culprit in carbonated soft drinks, however, is the fizz itself: carbonic acid. A sugary, un-carbonated drink like Kool-Aid is actually easier on teeth than, say, Diet Pepsi. So watch your consumption of soft drinks and be sure to contact Kelly Dental Care at (855) 695-7452 to schedule a dental checkup.
