How Do I Know if I Have Gum Disease? | Bergenfield Dentist

Oradell Dentist Serving Bergenfield, Dumont, and Oradell, New Jersey

Gum disease is one of the more common- and serious- conditions our Bergenfield dentists treat. It's a significant problem, and it needs to be treated as quickly as possible. If you let gum disease linger, it can devastate your oral health.

This means that if you have the symptoms of gum disease, you should contact our dentists as soon as  you can. The symptoms of gum disease include:

  • Sore, bleeding gums
  • Gums that change to a purple or dark red color
  • Heightened sensitivity
  • Gums with a different texture than before

The good news is that gum disease can be effectively treated and reversed if caught early. A gum disease diagnosis is not a cause for panic- our dentists can provide you with an effective treatment regimen that will return your gums to a healthy state.

But all of that obviously requires a diagnosis, and that requires a trip to our office. Many people are reluctant to go to the dentist for a gum disease evaluation. They're worried about what they'll hear or they don't want to face the treatment.

We understand your concerns, and we do everything we can to ensure you have a pleasant, relaxing experience at our office. There are no dental problems that can't be solved if you actually face them- gum disease included.
