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.
