Gums that bleed when brushed should never be ignored. This common symptom of gum disease is often one of the first indications of bacterial infection and should be brought to the attention of Bergen County dentist Dr. Howard Perlmutter as soon as possible. Through swift intervention, Dr. Perlmutter can typically treat gum disease in these early stages with little more than advanced cleaning techniques. Left to progress however and treating the problem becomes increasingly invasive and involved.
To schedule a gum disease treatment consultation at Dumont Cosmetic Dental, please call (201) 384-9292 today.
Not a Problem to Ignore
Treating gum disease is the only way to address the infection and prevent serious oral and systemic health consequences. Untreated, this common disease can lead to chronic bad breath, tooth loss, and even jawbone necrosis. It can also increase risks for:
- Heart attack and stroke
- Respiratory illness
- Pancreatic cancer
- Premature birth weight and other pregnancy complications
- Alzheimer’s and dementia
You may be able to reduce your risks for these issues by addressing the infection at its source. Dr. Perlmutter would be happy to discuss your gum disease treatment options and help you find the most effective solution during your next visit to our office.
