Wilkes Barre Area Gum Disease and Gingivitis Periodontist

Gum disease occurs most frequently when trapped bacteria gets caught in the gums and may lead to periodontitis, bone loss in the mouth or even infection that affects the patient's heart. That's why Wilkes Barre area gingivitis periodontist Dr. Kelly looks for early signs of periodontal disease such as bad breath, loose teeth, bleeding gums, and pockets (extra space in between the tooth and the gum).

There's no such thing as gum disease that can be ignored. Even if there are few symptoms in the beginning, the greater concern is the long-term effect that gum disease can have on your mouth and body. That's why at Kelly Dental Care our caring attitude and years of experience can literally save your beautiful smile - and perhaps even your life!

Don't wait any longer if you're suffering from swollen gums. Fill out the form here on our website, or call us today at (570) 587-4787. Our friendly staff will be happy to schedule an appointment where you can learn about all of your options.

Dry Mouth: More Than Just a Nuisance

It should be easy to seal an envelope, but those who suffer from a condition called xerostomia, or dry mouth, usually have to reach for some tape instead. Dry mouth can not only hinder your enjoyment of food, but affect the health of your teeth. Heavy plaque and food accumulations tend to occur with this condition, which can lead to tooth decay and gum disease.

Saliva is the body's self-cleansing mechanism. It helps remove food, debris, and plaque from the tooth surfaces, protecting you from oral diseases. It cleans your teeth and neutralizes acids, which prevents tooth decay. People who have dry mouth are very susceptible to cavities, especially on the roots of their teeth, so please call us today at (855) 695-7452 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Joseph Kelly.

How To Avoid Crisis Dental Treatment

Many people don't see a dentist on a regular basis. They go only when they feel they have a problem. At Kelly Dental Care we call this 'crisis treatment' as opposed to 'preventive treatment.' While these patients may feel they are saving money, it usually ends up costing much more in both dollars and time. Most dental problems don't have any symptoms until they reach the advanced stages.

An example is tooth decay – it doesn’t hurt until it gets close to the nerve of the tooth. Then a costly root canal or dental crown are usually necessary, instead of the small filling, which could have been placed inexpensively several years ago when the cavity was small. If you have questions regarding dental emergencies, please call our office at (855) 695-7452 today.

It's Best To Detect Dental Problems Early

Cavities and broken fillings are easy to treat when they’re caught in the early stages. Without regular trips to the dentist, these problems will only get worse and can lead to expensive and uncomfortable root canals, gum surgery and tooth extraction.

You owe it to yourself, and your pocketbook, to get regular dental care. Contact Kelly Dental Care today at (855) 695-7452 to schedule an appointment for a checkup and cleaning.
