Gum Care in Caldwell, NJ
Dr. Jerry Strauss recognizes that advanced periodontal care is the foundation for a healthy smile. Gum disease (periodontal disease) develops when plaque and bacteria builds up around and inside the soft tissue of your gums. Red, swollen, bleeding, and/or sensitive gums are examples of the common symptoms you may experience with gingivitis and the early stages of gum disease. If left untreated, gum disease can get much worse, ultimately leading to gum recession, tooth loss and decay. Periodontal disease may also increase the risk of serious overall health conditions, including stroke and heart disease. During your routine dental examinations, Dr. Strauss can detect early signs of periodontal disease and promptly treat it to improve the health of your gums.
Aesthetic Dental Care of New Jersey offers a variety of procedures to restore your gums to a healthier state. Dr. Strauss and our experienced dental team can treat gum disease effectively and precisely using some of the latest laser dentistry techniques and minimally-invasive procedures. For more severe levels of gum disease, our non-surgical treatments involve removing the tartar and bacteria deep below your gums, disinfecting the area around the roots of the teeth, then using laser treatment to provide a strong seal between the gums and teeth. This technique has many advantages, including a quick recovery time and reduced risk of excessive swelling and bleeding. With gum disease treatment, you can prevent the condition from getting worse and renew the health and appearance of your gums.
