Healthy gums are essential to a healthy smile and even a healthy body. Your gums add to your appearance and help keep your teeth in their proper positions. But they are also your first line of defense between you and oral bacteria. That bacteria can create serious problems for your cardiovascular and respiratory systems and has been linked to the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. At Integrated Aesthetic Dentistry, we offer periodontal treatments in New York City, and you can call us for your appointment with Drs. Barsoum, Cafarella, Reid, Heindel, Nord, Vonderheide and Chu. Our dentists and team have offices in Gramercy Park and the Upper East Side.
