Our Lincoln Park, New Jersey dentist, Dr. Falduto, provides periodontal care to help your mouth heal from periodontal disease. Periodontal disease, which is also known as gum disease, is a dental condition that is caused by bacteria and is often linked to a buildup of plaque on the teeth. If left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to loss of teeth, bone, and gum tissue. If you suffer from any of the following symptoms, you may have periodontal disease:
- Red, tender gums
- Painful chewing
- Loose teeth
- Swollen gums that bleed easily
- Persistent bad breath
- Receding gums, or teeth that appear longer than usual
Dr. Falduto offers periodontal treatments, such as scaling and root planing (deep cleaning methods) to treat periodontal disease and encourage the growth of healthy gum tissue. If you believe you may suffer from periodontal disease, or if you would like to learn more about periodontal care, we encourage you to call us today. We are committed to improving your oral health!
