We often think of our general dentist when we are considering the health of our teeth, but few realize that gum health is equally important. The health of our gums has a direct impact on how well our teeth perform, as well as many other facets of our overall wellbeing. In fact, periodontal health may be more important than the condition of the teeth themselves.

Periodontics is the treatment of the gums and prevention of gum disease. Gum disease can lead to tooth decay, and even the loss of one or more teeth. In addition, gum disease has been linked to many serious health conditions, including:

  • Heart Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Stroke
  • Pregnancy Complications

Treatments for gum disease begin with good oral hygiene, including a conscientious home routine of brushing and flossing, as well as regular dental cleanings and checkups. If you notice changes in the appearance of your gums, sudden bad breath, bleeding gums when you brush or floss, or sensitivity to temperatures, you may require additional periodontal treatments. Dumont general dentist Dr. Howard Perlmutter will carefully assess your gums and determine the best course of treatment to get you back on track.

If you have noticed any recent changes in your gums, please call Oradell Family Dental at (201) 384-9292 to schedule an appointment with our experienced Dumont general dentist.
