Signs of Gum Disease

Early treatment can eliminate bacteria and make chronic gum disease more manageable in the future. Signs of gum disease include:

  • Red, swollen, tender gums
  • Bleeding gums when you brush or floss your teeth
  • Bad breath or a foul taste in the mouth that is not alleviated by brushing, flossing, or mouthwash
  • Pain or sensitivity in the teeth or gums when chewing food
  • The sensation of loose teeth
  • Receding gums that are pulling away from the teeth

Prevention and Treatment of Gum Disease in Jersey City

The first line of defense in maintaining periodontal health is prevention: brush your teeth twice daily and floss each day. It is also critical to have a professional dental cleaning and exam twice a year.

Regular dental cleanings remove plaque to prevent a bacterial buildup that can lead to infection. Should periodontal issues arise, we offer a wide range of treatments to restore your gum health. Periodontal treatments may include:

  • Scaling and root planing
  • Flap surgery
  • Osseous surgery
  • Gingivectomy
  • Soft tissue grafts
  • Tooth extractions
  • Root amputations
  • Gum contouring
