Preserving Oral Health with Periodontal Therapy in West Orange & Caldwell
Gum Disease Treatment for a Lifetime of Healthy Smiles
Many people who are currently suffering from gum disease have no idea it’s there at all – you could even have it! You may have symptoms but simply not recognize them, or you might be exhibiting no symptoms whatsoever. Here in West Orange, NJ and Caldwell, NJ, our dental team knows that this sneaky disease is extremely dangerous for your smile, which is why we offer periodontal therapy to help those suffering from gum disease escape extensive damage and discomfort. If you haven’t had a dental exam in a while, explore the symptoms of gum disease below and then make an appointment for an exam with Dr. Dawoud and the rest of our dedicated team to find out whether or not you need periodontal therapy to revive your oral health. Our two locations serve the nearby areas of Verona, Roseland, Cedar Grove, and other northern New Jersey communities.
The symptoms of gum disease include:
- Bleeding gums
- Red, swollen, or tender gums
- Bad breath
- Loosening or separating teeth
Other symptoms (such as pus forming along the gumline) don’t generally occur until much later in the disease. You’re most likely to notice bleeding when you brush or floss your teeth. If this occurs, visit us at D&G Dental to find out more about your gum health.
For those suffering with gum disease, periodontal therapy is sometimes recommended. If we don’t treat gum disease early enough, patients may end up losing teeth, which will lead to the significant time and expense of reconstructive treatment. Our periodontal treatment includes deep cleaning along and below the gum line through a process that’s known as scaling. Once the area has been cleaned, we’ll plane the tooth roots as well, smoothing them out so bacteria can’t take hold as easily.
Your gums play a big role in oral health, so make sure they stay healthy with regular trips to D&G Dental. For surrounding New Jersey communities, like West Orange, Caldwell, Verona, Roseland, and Cedar Grove, D&G Dental provides advanced general dental treatments like periodontal therapy and more.
