What is Gum Disease?

Not all bacteria in the mouth is bad, but some types can cause serious dental problems. Learn more on how to prevent gum disease from forming and how to promote a healthy and happy mouth from Rockland Dental Specialist’s Dr. Shalom Mintz.


High-tech laser treatment allows Dr. Mintz to efficiently kill the bacteria, rather than just disturb it while cutting gums. The LANAP enables a dental specialist to really get into the nooks and crannies to entirely destroy unwanted bacteria accurately and painlessly.
