Gum Care in Fort Lee, NJ & Surrounding Area

We make our patient’s oral health a top priority. With this in mind, Dr. Joel Singer has developed an excellent periodontal program to help you avoid tooth loss and maintain healthier bone levels. For those patients at risk of or who have developed periodontal disease, our dentist can offer you gentle, comprehensive gum care and soft-tissue treatments to help you restore your smile and oral health.

Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a degenerative condition caused by harmful bacteria in your mouth. When the bacteria infects and inflames the gum tissues, it can cause significant damage to your oral health. If left untreated, it can also lead to gum recession, tooth loss and bone loss. Gum disease is a serious matter. It has been linked to a number of systemic conditions, including diabetes, heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis, respiratory disease and pregnancy complications.

Common symptoms of gum disease include:

  • Red, swollen and tender gums
  • Gums that bleed very easily
  • Pain when chewing
  • Constant bad breath
  • Receding gums
  • Loose teeth

At each visit to our office, our dentists will check for signs of periodontal disease during a dental exam. If you are diagnosed with gum disease, we will work with you to develop a treatment plan to manage the condition and help you regain your oral health. We do offer non-surgical gum care to treat gum disease.

We will also review your treatment options prior to providing care so that you can make informed decisions about options for gum treatments.  Please call us today to learn more about our gum care program at (201) 429-0097. We will be happy to provide you with more information about gum care and periodontal disease in our Fort Lee, New Jersey office.

EVERY PATIENT HAS A STORY

warm friendly atmosphere - I was referred to another practice as my situation is very involved and requires different strategies. Even so, Dr Singer said to feel free to call on them if I had an emergency which was very reassuring.

I went in for an opinion and Dr. Singer and his staff (and a nearby specialist they called up) just went to work to rescue my front tooth in an afternoon! I did not know my tooth was in so much trouble but they have the equipment and knowledge to show you what is actually happening.

Blown away!! I'm so happy with this place.I highly recommend Dr,Singer and and his staff. They are welcoming, friendly and professional.My wife and I went for amalgam removal. Dr Singer took his time and explained everything throughly. I felt very comfortable since the first visit. I have never had great experience with Dentistry work before, but Dr Singer and his staff made sure I was comfortable. Also,they follow the Holistic Dental protocol to ensure safe amalgam removal and reverse the effects of mercury toxicity from the body. I finally got my mercury filling out and I feel great.Thank you Dr. Singer !!!Juan Carlos Alvarado
